About

While rich with cultural,
linguistic, and political diversity, African nations grapple with the challenges
of economic development and globalization. The nation of Botswana, in southern
Africa, is illustrative of both this diversity and of successful approaches to
these challenges.

 

The country boasts one of the most
dynamic economies on the continent and the government has developed substantial
initiatives for confronting and managing issues such as rural-to-urban
migration, poverty, and high rates of HIV/AIDS infection.

 

On the Botswana: Development in Southern Africa program, you will live and
learn alongside local students at the University of Botswana (UB) in Gaborone,
the nation’s capital.

 

You will take courses at UB and pursue
an independent project in your area of interest, and also have opportunities to
volunteer with local community organizations. The program's numerous field
trips range from a weekend in Johannesburg, South Africa to a safari, a
homestay in a rural village, and a visit to a diamond mine.
