Due to the State Department Travel Ban, the 2018 Cuba Study Abroad Program is canceled.
Mississippi College School of Law is pleased to offer its spring break study abroad program in Havana, Cuba. Students will take a two-credit course in Comparative Civil Rights while spending a full week exploring the wonders of Havana. The course will be taught by Professor Matt Steffey of MC Law.
