ACS and its member institutions are dedicated
to creating international learning experiences for faculty, students,
and staff. In an ever changing and challenging world, students must
be prepared to deal with cross-cultural experiences -- whether they
occur in the student's backyard or a continent away. Faculty and
staff must be adequately prepared to assist in this preparation.
We welcome your comments and suggestions. Please send a message to

African Renaissance Studies Program
Study Abroad in Ghana and Burkina Faso
The Morehouse Pan-African Global Experience (MPAGE) study abroad is offering the African Renaissance Studies Program in Ghana and Burkina Faso. It takes place in both urban and rural Ghana. Participants will visit five cities: Accra, the capital; Cape Coast and Elmina – the locations where the slavers came ashore; Kumasi, the home of the Ashanti in the forest region; and Tamale, in the northern savannah region. Currently one cross-border excursion is planned, into Burkina Faso, the northern neighbor of Ghana. Courses are taught by both Morehouse College faculty and Ghanaian scholars. There is an interdisciplinary focus, and field work is featured rather than relying primarily on classroom instruction. Although specific courses offered vary, courses in African American Studies, Economics, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology are available.
