Academics

Students are fully integrated into the University of Ghana system. In consultation with the resident director in Ghana, you will design an academic program of four or five courses from the diverse array of subjects offered by the university's many academic departments. A special language course for Tufts students in Twi language is taught on the Legon campus. The resident director facilitates internships and service-learning opportunities.
