Colombia is synonymous with coffee, emeralds, a colonial past that is strongly reflected in the beautiful Cartagena de Indias and a very diverse landscape where you can see desert, snow-capped mountains, jungle, coasts, islands or rivers of various colors.

Without necessarily asking explicit questions in the course, the course will revolve around certain interdisciplinary issues. For example, what is a city, what is it to be urban, how do cities determine our social relations, are cities part of nature, what are the challenges of large cities, what is development, what is the future of Latin American cities, and what is the future of Latin American cities? Also questions related to journalism: How do you narrate a city? How do you construct a point of view? What is the critical value of journalism in the construction of our reality? What is the value of memory and remembrance in a city?

Beyond the Ocean there is a world that is both distant and close at the same time. These are places where people talk like us, make the same jokes, use the same themes? They are our neighbors thousands of miles away. But in an exotic land and with the influence of pre-Columbian cultures.
There are several great trips that everyone has in mind to do at least once in a lifetime. Places that leave us without the right words to describe their greatness: Machu Picchu, Amazon, Yucatan, Galapagos, Bocas del Toro, the Mayan Region, Patagonia, Rio de Janeiro, to name a few.
