The Stellenbosch, South Africa, Study Abroad Program is a four-week Maymester program that offers a unique combination of classroom learning, community engagement, and wildlife viewing. The program is directed by UGA’s Center for the Study of Global Issues (GLOBIS) and is hosted by Stellenbosch University. The program offers two classes taught by UGA faculty, allowing students to earn six hours of UGA credit.  As part of the program, students will get the chance to fully engage with the South African community by participating in a four-week service-learning project in the nearby community of Kayamandi.
