 Study Abroad in Botswana


Come to Gaborone, one of Africa’s fastest-growing capital cities, where traditional culture intersects with global economics and other modern influences like social media. The nation's diverse wildlife habitats and ecosystems make it a fitting destination for studies in conservation, the environment and ecology. Botswana is also ideal for pursuing global, development and international studies, pre-med courses or community health interests. 

In addition to taking classes with local students, you can do an internship, volunteer or conduct research in a topic related to your UC major. Research or internship opportunities may​ include preventive health services, biodiversity in the Kalahari Desert, African history, literature or sociology, and so much more.

Do cultural activities, live with a homestay family in a rural village for a week and go on ​trips to places like the Khama Rhino Sanctuary, the National Museum, and Chobe National Park.
