When it comes to the Caribbean, there’s no shortage of beautiful beaches, sunny skies, palm trees, and coconuts. But this incredible tropical paradise is also filled with history, culture, biodiversity, politics, religion, cuisine, and music that gives it an identity as unique as its GPS coordinates.  

Make the Caribbean your classroom and gain a whole new perspective of our sunny-skied neighbors to the south. Every one of our Caribbean programs integrates rigorous coursework with co-curricular activities for in-depth learning – both academically and interculturally. In addition, homestays with local families accelerate both language learning and integration into the community. 

Whether you want to study the history and culture of Cuba or liberal arts or community health in the Dominican Republic, CIEE offers summer and semester-long options sure to advance your academics, Spanish skills, and understanding of the Caribbean.
