Uganda Studies Program


At Uganda Christian University in Mukono, participants study and live with East African students and participate in homestays with Ugandan families. Lectures, research, worship, and a service projects help students experience daily life as a member of Ugandan society.  Former participants appreciate being stretched and confronted with new perspectives on this powerful program!
