Program Description:

Program OverviewCIEE Botswana

Botswana is one of Africa’s most stable countries, and a multi-party democracy. It is unusual in that the majority of its population is from a single ethnic group, the Tswana. Gaborone, the capital city, is one of Africa’s fastest-growing cities and lies in southeastern Botswana, close to the border of South Africa. In addition to the main campus of the University of Botswana, Gaborone also hosts the headquarters of the 10 nation Southern African Development Community, which focuses on regional development, economic growth, and poverty alleviation

Program Focus

The CIEE Study Center at the University of Botswana offers students from a wide range of academic disciplines the opportunity to live and study in Botswana, learning firsthand about the country and its people, while pursuing an intensive curriculum in classes with local students. Through courses at the university and a variety of community engagement and field-based research opportunities, participants will explore Botswana and learn about its important role in the Southern African region. The summer program is focused on Community Health.
