Webster Ghana Welcoming Study Abroad Students for Fall 2015; Applications due March 16

| February 25, 2015
The campus in Accra, Ghana, opened in 2014, will begin welcoming undergraduate study abroad students for Fall 2015.

Applications for study abroad at the Ghana campus in Fall 2015 are due March 16.

For the first time, Webster University’s Ghana campus in Accra will welcome undergraduate study abroad students from any Webster campus to study in Africa starting fall 2015, when Webster Ghana will begin offering undergraduate study abroad courses.

The courses will be available to local degree-seeking students as well as to those coming from abroad. The campus opened in March 2014 offering the MBA and the MA in International Relations degrees and in August welcomed the first cohort of undergraduate students majoring in International Relations, Management and Media Communications programs.

Undergraduate courses will be semester-long and will be taught by a combination of visiting instructors and local experts. New courses are being developed to take advantage of the West African location. All majors are welcome to take advantage of this novel opportunity.

Several cultural excursions are planned as part of the program. Study abroad students will have a variety of cultural, sporting and leisure activities designed to help them fully immerse into the Ghanaian society. Access to unique student life offerings as well as participation in classes with students from the region promises to make a fall semester in Ghana a memorable experience. Students willing to study abroad during fall 2015 must submit a completed application to the Office of Study Abroad (OSA) by March 16.

About Ghana

Accra, the capital of Ghana, is a major metropolitan area with a population approaching 2.6 million and stretches along the Ghanaian Atlantic coast. It is a bustling metropolis founded in the 17th century with a rich history. It became the capital of the British Gold Coast in 1877. Following Ghana’s independence in 1957, Accra became the capital of the newly independent state. Although over 75 languages/dialects are spoken, English is the official language of the country, but not necessarily the first language for many people.
