The UW Agriculture, Health & Nutrition in Uganda program is offered by the College of Agricultual and Life Sciences (CALS) in partnership with IAP.

The Uganda Program is a unique study abroad experience that combines field visits and classroom learning with the study of health and nutrition topics in the developing country of Uganda.

The classroom seminars focus on the broader issues that impact health and nutrition in Uganda including politics, economics, education, history, women’s studies, nutrition, and HIV/AIDS.

During the field study, students visit various health care facilities specializing in nutrition rehabilitation, traditional medicine, and HIV/AIDS. This includes both rural and city hospitals, drug dispensaries, and village homes. You will explore the links between agriculture, nutrition and health by visiting agricultural research centers, water treatment centers, NGO’s, the U.S. Embassy, or an orphanage. There are also opportunities to visit cultural areas such as Queen Elizabeth or Murchison Fall National Park, and the source of the Nile River.

Please note: Students are required to enroll in Nutritional Science 375, Section 002 during fall semester of 2017-2018 in order to participate in the January travel portion.  This course meets Wednesdays from 3:30 - 4:50.
