Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Ghana: Globalization, Cultural Legacies & the Afro-Chic

Experience West Africa through immersion in Ghanaian cities, which challenge stereotypes of Africa and position the continent as a global economic, political, and cultural force.

WHY STUDY GLOBALIZATION, CULTURAL LEGACIES, AND THE AFRO-CHIC IN GHANA?

From Ghana, you’ll gain a new perspective on Africa’s cosmopolitanism, one that complicates and defies Eurocentric representations that emphasize narratives of deprivation and backwardness. The central motif undergirding this program is Sankofa, a Ghanaian concept that encourages a strong engagement with the past in order to ensure informed and sustained progress into the future. You’ll also be introduced to the intricacies of hiplife music, media houses, and institutions across the country that highlight Ghana’s position in a hyper-globalized world.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
