Spend the month of May studying in Ghana, Africa...
Duquesne University's Center for African Studies is offering the 2016 Maymester Program in Ghana, Africa. This four-week program will allow students who cannot study abroad for a full semester the opportunity to do so in the summer. The Spiritan Order, founders of Duquesne University, have maintained a missionary presence in Ghana and West Africa for over 150 years. This travel-study opportunity places special focus on Africa and the global diaspora and strengthens links between Duquesne and the worldwide Spiritan mission.
As one of Africa's most peaceful and politically stable countries, Ghana is an English-speaking country on the west coast of the continent of Africa. Ghana is also a Christian country, with over 70 percent of population identifying themselves as Christian. It is one of the most colorful and diverse nations in West Africa and home to European-built forts and castles, many of which are now museums or hotels. You are sure to fall in love with the hospitality of Ghana's people and the beauty of its landscape.
