In Houghton’s East Africa semester, you won’t just learn anthropology, ecology, and language – you’ll do it.

Reinforce your studies with experiences such as travelling to nearby villages to learn about daily life, study biology and wildlife behavior at national parks, hike through gorges rich with ancient fossils, and more.

These experiences are supplemented by classroom discussion, readings, and guest lectures from local experts in business, development, ecotourism, global relief, missions, and more.

Core courses offered:

  • East African Anthropology
  • Human Ecology
  • Introductory Swahili
  • Wildlife Behavior
  • Additional courses may include Intercultural Experience, missions topics, and/or independent study options by request.
