I learned that I have the ability to move into a new country and develop a new way of life with new people from around the world. Knowing this, is comforting because as I continue to travel abroad I know that I have what it takes to be independent and assimilate into a new culture and surroundings. And have fun doing it!

My experience was definitely worthwhile - I only wish I could have stayed for longer than 6 weeks.

The Accra program offers a unique opportunity for students to live and study in the heart of West Africa. It is the perfect destination for those who want to learn about the complex issues facing a developing African nation while enjoying a rich cultural, historical and social experience. You may enroll in a traditional African Studies program or choose from a wide array of courses taught in English at the University of Ghana, Legon. As you will be totally integrated at the university, you will live and study on campus alongside native Ghanaians while experiencing the culture, learning about the country, and making friends. Each semester includes several excursions in and around Accra to places like Lake Volta, the largest manmade lake and historic slave castles. You may choose to study for one semester, a full year, or for the summer
