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.
Explore African perspectives on development and tradition with direct enrollment in the University of Botswana. A special track in public health includes a community practicum/internship.
