About the Course

We will be in Ghana for a month, between mid-July and mid-August.  Wayne State students are also expected to attend two days of orientation, which will be scheduled in late June or early July to best fit the schedules of students attending.  Students must arrive in Accra on July 15th.  You should work with the Wayne State University Study Abroad Office to arrange your flights.

The cost of the course is $1,925.00, which includes housing and travel within Ghana.  This cost does not include airfare, tuition, food, or other spending money.  Wayne State students who enroll in this course should be eligible for a tuition break.  There are also scholarships available.  Students should contact the Study Abroad office at studyabroad@wayne.edu for questions about cost or financial aid.

The course will be headquartered at Ashesi University and the nearby city of Accra, the capital of Ghana.  We will take required trips to nearby cities of Elmina/Cape Coast and Kumasi.  The cost of those trips are included in the total price of the course.  Students will have the option of participating in an additional trip to Sekondi-Takoradi, which includes a cultural tour of the eastern part of Ghana and a day trip to Aburi/Koforidua

The course is being listed as HONS 4260.  The course, however, is open to students who are not in the Honors program.  The course is also open to graduate students, who may register under a different number in the History Department.  Graduate students who wish to receive graduate credit should contact Prof. Hart directly or attend one of the information sessions.
