contrasts, development challenges, environmental change, colonial legacies,
social determinants of health, rapid population growth & urbanization,
proliferation of slums & the rapidly growing middle class, and more in
Ghana (West Africa)
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. For GEOG and SOCL the program will include service
days, earning one credit of INTD 250, spent at schools and other sites. We
will also enjoy cultural excursions, traditional drumming and dancing,
beach time, etc.
