The approach will be largely experiential and applied learning, and site
visits will include schools, hospitals, factories and other businesses,
farms, markets, national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and community
development projects. We will also have cultural excursions to enjoy the
art, music, and natural beauty of the country. For GEOG and SOCL the
program will include service days, earning one credit of INTD 250, spent at
schools and other sites.

The U.S. State Department ranks Ghana as a Level 1 country, the safest
category for travel; the Global Peace Index ranks Ghana at 44 out of 163,
compared to the U.S. ranking of 128.

If you have dismissed the idea of study abroad because of the cost, visit
the Study Abroad Office and Dr Michael Mills to learn about scholarships.
And come to a Ghana info session to learn how much value this study abroad
program offers ...
