What do you know about Africa? What do you know about urban life versus rural life? How is Ghana a part of the slave trade in the Americas? What does a colonized country do after it gains its independence? What social issues is Ghana working to address today? These are a few of the questions will be seeking to answer during our two-week stay in Ghana. In addition to these questions, you will have an opportunity to visit important locations in Ghana’s history and contemporary locations that seek to address education, social, environmental, and health-related issues.

The activities that will be integrated into the international location include a Q & A sessions with local experts, representatives from NGOs, village chiefs and elders (i.e., environment, public health issues, education, culture, traditions) and site visits following lectures (i.e., Cape Coast Castle - visit to slave dungeon)
