Uganda Studies Program
Come to Africa! At Uganda Christian University in Mukono, program participants study and live with East African students. The program contains two study tracks: a Uganda Studies Emphasis and an Intercultural Ministry Emphasis. Lectures, research, worship, and a service project help students experience daily life as a member of Ugandan society. A brief homestay with a local family and a week-long trip to Rwanda challenge students to view life beyond their familiar cultural boundaries. Former participants appreciate being stretched and confronted with new perspectives on this powerful program!

“The most rewarding aspect was getting to experience life in a new place completely independent from everything that was familiar to me. It was a great learning experience about growing up.”
