International Development and Education in Accra, Ghana

Study Abroad in Ghana! Using Accra as a case study, and through site visits and interactions with schools, state agencies, and non-governmental organizations, the questions guiding class sessions and individual student research include: How do local and international actors think about the role of education in international development, and how does this translate to practice? What are the practical challenges and opportunities of implementing education programming in Ghana? What programs and approaches are most successful and why? What can we learn from the Ghanaian experience that may inform our broader understanding of education and international development?

Undergraduate and graduate students alike are welcome to enroll. See the syllabus here. Learn more about interning in Ghana after the class, too!
