Overview

Gap at CET Colombia students study race, identity, and ethnicity through the Afro-Colombian lens in Cali—a city with the second largest population of African descent in South America.

The program’s curriculum, developed in consultation with Howard University, allows you to examine these dynamics through sociopolitical, economic, artistic, and historical representations of race in Colombia. In addition to your core course, Race, Ethnicity, and Identities: Debates in the Colombian Context, you’ll take a two-week intensive Spanish course to help with the adjustment to life in Cali, and can choose between several elective courses. You have many opportunities for additional out-of-class learning, as well, through living with local Colombian roommates, a discussion series, excursions outside of Cali, and a Traveling Seminar to San Basilio de Palenque and Cartagena.
