The 4-Week Summer Abroad Program in Ghana is the oldest JMU program on the continent of Africa. In partnership with the University of Ghana and a select number of local Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), our students gain knowledge in multiple disciplines--from history to religion to social work, applied engineering, and health sciences.


This 4-week study abroad program is located in Malmö, Sweden, with visits to Stockholm and Copenhagen, Denmark. While we travel, we will explore the rich history of Scandinavian design, which is known internationally for its functional simplicity, attention to detail, and refined aesthetic. Rooted in social democratic concepts, modern Scandinavian design will be observed through urban and environmental planning, architecture, industrial and product design, and graphic design.
