One of my favorite parts of my study abroad program was the opportunity to visit different parts of the country. We also visited many different museums and historical sites throughout the country to compare how history is represented. Much of the program is taught through experiential learning, so most of the learning takes place outside of the classroom. Hence, we visited many different places to discuss their importance and how they have influenced people. At the end of the program, students have the opportunity to complete a research project or an internship within the Cape Town. I conducted a month long research project. This opportunity allowed me to better understand what it is like to conduct research and the ethics around it. During this month, students live on their own with other students from the program. This independence helped me also helped me learn how to navigate the city.
