The campaign for Hartwick students

Changes and Challenges of South Africa

Location: Cities and countryside of South Africa

Course: ANTH 355

The richest country on its continent, South Africa was long ruled by a brutal white dictatorship that repeatedly committed crimes against humanity upon its black inhabitants. Starting at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, students travel from Kruger Park to the Indian Ocean to learn of the changes and challenges since Apartheid, with lectures by local experts, students and citizens. The class visits game reserves, famous archaeological and paleontological sites, rural native villages and glittering malls, museums, schools, orphanages, squatter camps, beaches, and mountains in a quest to understand the nation's continuing transition to a multiracial, multicultural democracy.

Instructors: Professor of Anthropology Connie Anderson and Craig Bielert
Length of program: 26 days

Hartwick College has long demonstrated remarkable skill in fostering student learning through knowledge and experience. We value the importance of Hartwick's well-rounded approach to education and feel that supporting these efforts is a winning investment in current and future generations. Of course, it's always satisfying to make an investment with a guaranteed return.
