About the Program

The Alternative Spring Break in Ghana program places teams of college students in communities where they perform short-term projects while learning about such issues as poverty, gender issues, educational and cultural literacy, racism, hunger, the environment and homelessness in Ghana. These experiences are designed to heighten social awareness and promote lifelong social action. Students will also have the opportunity to visit museums, slave dungeons and other sites that have historical and cultural significance.

Course-embedded programs are SDSU regular session courses that take place in the Fall or Spring semesters, but which have an international trip attached to the course. The international trip can take place before the semester begins, during Spring Break or after the term ends. For this program, the international trip will take place during Spring Break.
