Past Review
Aside from viewing America from another place and having to adapt to unfamiliar customs, habits, and ways of life, I learned infinite amounts about myself which is the best thing you can get out of any experience. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review
Hard to summarize, but briefly: everything is connected, in incredibly dynamic ways you can't necessarily imagine. Most values are somewhat arbitrary (e.g. individualism is not necessarily as great as Americans tend to think it is), as is the fact that you were born affluent and American as opposed to poor and Ghanaian.

Past Review
I definitely became more independent, flexible, and patient. I'm comfortable traveling and handle setbacks on my journeys with relative ease. I have lived in a totally different culture and learned to appreciate and understand different value systems.

About

The Tufts-in-Ghana program, which takes place in the fall semester, links Tufts to the University of Ghana (Legon), located just outside the booming metropolis of the capital, Accra.

The University of Ghana, founded in 1948, is a full-service research and teaching university comprising two main colleges (College of Health Sciences and College of Agriculture and Consumer Sciences); six faculties (Arts, Law, Science, Social Studies, Engineering Science, and Business School); and numerous institutes, schools, and centers, some of which offer courses only at the graduate level (for example, the School of Communication Studies and the School of Public Health). The university’s more than 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students are served by nine residence halls, two international student hostels, a chain of privately operated hostels, central and branch libraries, a university hospital, several banks, a post office, and several communication centers for email, telephone, and fax. The area of Legon is part of Greater Accra, a cosmopolitan urban center.

Students in the program are fully integrated into the University of Ghana system. In consultation with the resident director in Ghana, you will design an academic program of four or five courses from the diverse array of subjects offered by the university's many academic departments. Special language courses for Tufts students in Twi or Ewe are taught on the Legon campus. The resident director facilitates internships and service-learning opportunities.
