A Decade of Democracy and Beyond

Learn first-hand about the history and politics of South Africa from the end of Apartheid, through the first free election of Nelson Mandela, to the rise of South Africa's stature in the global arena.  Your studies will be based on the beautiful campus of the University of Stellenbosch, surrounded by the Cape Winelands and within 45 minutes of Cape Town. In addition to the politics, history, and economics of this fascinating and important country, you may choose to take a course in biodiversity, explore African art and literature, or participate in a service learning project.

Before you go, you can contact our program manager for advice on the application process, choosing courses, or simply what you should pack. Once you arrive, our resident director will lead an orientation program in Cape Town that will introduce you to the culture, history and politics of South Africa as well as prepare you for the academic challenges of studying in a different educational system. You can expect to participate in excursions that are designed to allow you to reflect on the learning that is taking place outside the classroom.
