Study Abroad in Africa

Students with an interest in African Studies may study abroad in Africa in any of several Emory-sponsored and Emory-approved programs, or they may choose to enroll in an Emory-sponsored African studies program in London.  Currently, Emory College Study Abroad programs include opportunities in Ghana, Morocco, Rwanda, Namibia/Botswana, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda.

To ensure that the African studies faculty accepts credit for African study abroad, a student should take at least one course on Africa at Emory prior to leaving for study abroad in Africa. A maximum of two courses taken while abroad can be counted toward the African Studies major or minor. Visit the Emory College Study Abroad website for more information regarding individual programs and application procedures.

If you're interested in studying abroad, please contact Dr. Kristin Phillips (DUS) at kristin.d.phillips@emory.edu or studyabroad@emory.edu.
