Multicultural and Urban Educational Field Experience in Ghana

Students are paired with Ghanaian teachers who will mentor them in Ghanaian education while being given the chance to share what they have learned at Hartwick. In addition, students participate in an exciting variety of cultural workshops in drumming, dance and batik, ecotourism experiences from the rainforest to the sea, and finally, relaxing beach weekends.

J Term experiences have a major impact on students and that’s very powerful. It’s frustrating that many students can’t afford this kind of study abroad. I wanted to do something.
