Study Abroad Opportunity in Sierra Leone!

February 6, 2013SarahBlog


If you are interested in postwar reconstruction and nation building in Africa, then Northern Illinois University (NIU) has the perfect study abroad opportunity for you!

The theme this year is “African Democracy and Socio-Economic Development through Sustainable Engineering”, where students will have the opportunity to broaden their horizons on cultural diversity and global interconnectedness by traveling to Sierra Leone!

In partnership with the University of Sierra Leone, this program will be held from June 15, 2013-June 30, 2013.


Students can pay for the program with financial aid. Graduate students can take up to 6 credits and undergraduates can take up to 9 credits. The program is open to any college student in the US. Students can use the independent studies to tailor a qualitative method course or any other course that is relevant to their discipline (political science, sociology, anthropology, history, etc.).

The admission is first-come-first-serve with only 14 slots.

The last day to register is March 1, 2013; reserve your spot, now!
