Program Summary

Located in West Africa on the Gulf of Guinea, Ghana stands out as one of the most politically and economically stable as well as culturally vibrant countries on the continent. The capital city of Accra is an intriguing blend of successful modernity and rich colonial history.

Students interested in journalism will benefit from an intensive experience in immersion journalism. Students actively participate in reporting, writing, photographing, or filming almost every day. The schedule is rigorous. Students who wish to develop their reporting pieces further after returning to the U.S. will have the opportunity to do so.

"I loved how much we were encouraged to explore outside the classroom and truly immerse ourselves in the Ghanaian culture."
