Gulu Study and Service Abroad Program (GSSAP)
Have you ever wanted to work with children using dance as a form of therapy? Shadow an African politician? Help local cultural leaders implement programs for peace? If so, then GSSAP is perfect for you. Students from any major are invited to apply to earn 6 credits while studying post-conflict reconstruction and volunteering in a local organization in Gulu, Uganda in East Africa. You will have the opportunity to engage in international service learning - combining academics with internships in order to learn while providing assistance to individuals and groups who have been prominent figures in peacebulding.
Uganda is a land-locked country in East Africa with a population of approximately 33,000,000. Gulu (pop. 150,000) is the largest city in Northern Uganda, an area that is recovering from a 21 year conflict. Today, Northern Uganda is a peaceful region that is developing at an astonishing rate.
Students will receive 3 credits in Anthropology 491: Conflict and Peacebuilding in Northern Uganda and 3 credits in Religious Studies 492: International Service Learning in Northern Uganda.
Students will be housed in hotels in Gulu and Kampala. Breakfast will be provided each day.
