Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Cameroon: Development and Social Change 

NOTE: SIT will make every effort to maintain its programs as described. To respond to emergent situations, like COVID-19, SIT may have to modify programs.  
 

Examine development and the changing cultures, politics, and economy of Cameroon and explore the immigrant experience of Cameroonians in France. 

WHY STUDY IN CAMEROON? 

Cameroon, an ethnically diverse and rapidly changing country, is an ideal setting in which to study development. Alongside Cameroonian college students, you’ll discuss project sustainability, funding sources, and beneficiary involvement in project design and implementation with development experts and high-profile political leaders. Focusing on three major socio-cultural groups—Bamiléké, Bagyeli, and Anglophones—you’ll discover the complex relationships between development, modernization, and social change. You’ll also explore Cameroonian migration to France during a week in Paris. 
 

KEY TOPICS 

  • Social and political history of Cameroon and Cameroon’s future 
  • Development theories and best practices 
  • Cameroonian culture, dance, and art 
  • Women’s transition from traditional to “modern” 
  • The Cameroonian immigrant experience in France 

MONEY MATTERS 

SIT is an all-inclusively priced study abroad program – including academics costs, excursions, accommodations and meals, airport transfers, and health insurance. Be sure to discuss how study abroad costs are handled at your school with your study abroad advisor and read the website for more specific information. ?
