Offered through CIEE, the CIEE in Ghana program is an approved UW affiliate program. On this program, you will take a required Twi language course, along with four additional courses chosen from the regular offerings at the University of Ghana. All students are required to take at least one course in a subject related to Africa. Students who are interested in developmental challenges facing Ghana may also arrange for an internship.

You will be working closely with both IAP and CIEE on this program. You can access the program's main information page for the semester or the summer through the CIEE website to learn more about the academics, housing, excursions and activities, and location.
