Studying in Accra will provide students with a life-changing opportunity to live and study in a remarkable, historic city where coursework, home stays, and internships immerse them in the vibrant and awe-inspiring culture of Ghana. The program focuses on the complex intersection in the past and present between modern Ghana and the African diaspora. We answer questions such as: What are the connections between Ghana and the U.S.? How do both countries influence each other's music, food, innovation, and fashion? When did the connections in our politics and economics have their historical beginnings? Through the semester, students will discover the historic and contemporary ties connecting western Africa to the U.S. diaspora, examining topics ranging from the west African slave trade to the Pan-African movement and beyond. Students from three institutions -- Rhodes, Centre, and Sewanee -- will take part in this unique liberal arts collaboration examining these intriguing and important questions.
