Program Description:

In this study center program, students live and learn in Cape Town, a microcosm of many African countries in transition, illuminating the issue of joining the global economy while grappling with vast socioeconomic inequalities. Coursework focuses on socioeconomic issues that impact impoverished communities, participation in a community development project, and a service-learning capstone project. Students live either with a South African family, or in a shared apartment with other study center participants.
