Trent-in-Ghana

Trent in Ghana logoTrent-in-Ghana Program (TIG) enables undergraduates to deepen their understanding of comparative and international development by living,studying and working in Ghana.

The program is based in Cape Coast in the South and Tamale, in the Northern Region. Exposure to these various locations enables students to become familiar with the diverse cultures and regions of Ghana. 

Students spend a full academic year in Ghana, from September until the end of April, participate in several field trips, and work for 10- 12 weeks with a development organization.  Students register in five full credit course equivalents, and may not drop any while on the program. Ghanaian academics and development professionals provide instruction. TIG selects five Ghanaian students to join the program.
