Program Description:

Program Overview

CIEE Cape Town

Situated on the southern tip of Africa, Cape Town is a vibrant multicultural city with a rich selection of day and night activities. Water sports, mountaineering, nightclubs, and restaurants are readily available. The city is also a microcosm of the challenges facing many African countries in transition: how to successfully operate within a global economy while at the same time grappling with the vast socio-economic inequalities that are the legacy of the colonial and apartheid past.

Program Focus

The rich academic program, established in 1998, allows students to pursue their own academic studies while providing first-hand knowledge of contemporary South African society. Students are required to enroll in at least one course with specific African content or one that offers a distinctive African perspective in their area of interest. CIEE also offers a separate Service Learning program in Cape Town, with a separate application, for students who are interested in engaging in community service along with their classroom study.
