Uganda Studies Program

Program Overview

In conjunction with Uganda Christian University, George Fox students can participate in the Uganda Studies Program (USP). Students will study with African students at Uganda Christian University in Kampala, Uganda the capital city of Uganda.

Course ContentUganda
The program is comprised of one experiential course designed especially for USP students, Faith and Practice in the Ugandan Context, two or three flexible core classroom courses, and up to two electives chosen from Uganda Christian University's Honours College. Typically, students attend lectures once a week and then meet with their tutors for further discussion.

Excursions include a week long visit to Rwanda and the option to go white water rafting on the Nile River.

Program Fees
Students pay their regular George Fox tuition and room and aboard and continue to receive all of their financial aid. Due to the high cost of some programs an additional fee may be charged. The student is responsible for round trip airfare. There also may be an additional charge for a visa. The fee does include emergency travel insurance.

The student will fill out two applications:
• George Fox off-campus application
The USP application should only be completed after being informed from the Director of Study Abroad that you are accepted for an off-campus study semester.
• Uganda Studies application

Students must be full-time undergraduates with junior or senior status, holding a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher to apply.

Students can elect to stay with a local family or to live on campus in one of four small dormitories living with students from Uganda and other African countries. Each dorm room will house two students in clean but modest accommodations, with common bathroom and shower facilities. Students living on campus will also have the opportunity to spend two weeks with a local host family.
