Join China Educational Tours Academic Programs (CET) Resident Director, Mariela Palacios, to learn about the CET Colombia semester abroad program.
At CET Colombia, you’ll study race and identity through the Afro-Colombian lens. And where better to do so than Cali, a city with the 2nd biggest population of African descent in South America? The program’s curriculum, developed in consultation with Howard University, allows you to examine the sociopolitical, economic, artistic and historical representations of race and ethnicity in Colombia. This program accepts students at any level of Spanish, including beginners.
Fun fact: Enjoy a cold champú (refreshing local drink) as you relax in town. Spend the weekend at the mountains or on the beach (2 hours by bus!) with your roommate. Go dancing with friends at Tin Tin Deo, an iconic local salsa club. Listen to the storytellers weave a tale atop the hill in the San Antonio neighborhood. Cali has everything going for it and as a student, you’ll take advantage of all the city has to offer.
