Travel and Study Abroad

Travel and study abroad programs allow students to experience customs, languages and cultures of the world firsthand. Students have up-close-and-personal encounters with some of the greatest accomplishments in history and get the chance to practice what they have learned about other customs, languages and currencies.


This study abroad program will provide students with captivating historical, educational, linguistic, and cultural facets of Ghana, West Africa. Students will visit many historic sites including the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum, Independence Square, and W.E.B. DuBois Centre to learn about the Pan African Culture, the History of Gold Coast, and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Students will also take trips to the Ashanti King´s Palace and Museum in Kumasi (which was used by the Ashanti kings until 1974), and the Cape Coast Castle (which was used to hold slaves before they were transported and sold in the Americas). Lastly, students will stopover at a local primary school (hold a lesson for the children while learning about life in the village in return) and participate in other exciting cultural events. Limited space. Sign up by Jan. 31.
