About Program

This program examines issues of health and development in Ghana and offers both classroom-based learning and hands-on experiences. In the summer program, students will take Tropical Diseases and coursework on issues facing Ghanaian society. In the fall, students will be able to take courses in Community Psychology, Epidemiology and Ghana Health and Society. As a complement to your coursework, students choose an experiential service learning/internship experience at a local community organization, healthcare service provider, or research institute. A wide variety of service learning placements in the fields of health, education, environmental issues and development are available and offer unique shadowing and observational opportunities. Students can also take Modern Twi (Ghana's most commonly spoken language) and participate in excursions around Accra. Summer students will live with a host family, while students can choose a homestay or a dormitory accommodation during the fall term.

This program is currently not being promoted on Go Overseas by its provider. Check with GEO Study Abroad for the most up-to-date information regarding the status of this program.
