 Study Abroad in Ghana


Ghana is one of Africa’s fastest-growing, more diverse economies, Ghana is considered a model for peace and democracy on the continent. While rural villages live by centuries-old cultural traditions within limited resources, upscale neighborhoods in Accra show the impact of globalization in West Africa and the nation's economic development.

These characteristics make Ghana an ideal place for students interested in community, global and development studies, public health and social services, and environmental sustainability.
