CIEE Development Studies Program in Dakar, Senegal
Over the past few years Senegal has made strides toward improving human rights and the standard of living. Explore how this is being achieved, and confront the complexities surrounding environmental, developmental, and globalization issues. You’ll join in a hands-on learning model to examine Senegalese society, from education to politics and the impact of Islam. Through language learning, homestays, coursework, fieldwork, and community engagement, you’ll get unparalleled insight into issues facing West Africa.
Study abroad in Senegal and you will:
- Learn firsthand about the development challenges facing Senegal through both coursework and participation in urban and rural community engagement projects
- Spend two weeks living, studying, and volunteering in a rural or semi-urban area of Senegal, deepening your understanding of development issues in different areas of the country
- Live with a local host family to gain new perspectives on Senegalese traditions
