Join one of the premier universities in East Africa to study and live alongside Ugandans and other students from the continent. Through classes, internships, and living with Ugandan families or peers, the Uganda Studies Program at Uganda Christian University (UCU) provides opportunities for students to authentically engage people, culture, and contemporary realities in Uganda in ways that challenge them to be active participants in Christ’s claim on all aspects of life.
Just 15 miles from the capital city of Kampala, Uganda Christian University is situated in the bustling town of Mukono that will quickly become home. Along with trips throughout Uganda, students also participate on a 10-day study tour to neighboring Rwanda.
Students in the Uganda Studies Program at UCU choose from one of the following academic emphases: social work, global health, or interdisciplinary.
The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU), an association of more than 185 campuses around the world, offers semester and summer programs to students of its member institutions. The programs offer a unique opportunity for students to make the world their classroom, going beyond the confines of the traditional classroom. These interdisciplinary learning opportunities are available to upper-class students. For further information, contact CCU’s Life Directions Center (LDC) for CCU-specific application procedures.
