Studying abroad is an alternate way to fulfill graduation requirements. Opportunities to enrich your studies can be found through the UCEAP http://studyabroad.berkeley.edu/eap program. Countries that have been affiliated with the Department of African American Studies are Barbados, Ghana, and Kenya.

Financial Aid can be applied to UCEAP programs and there are scholarships available. http://eap.ucop.edu/Scholarships/Pages/UCEAPScholarships.aspx

If you have an interest in studying abroad, it is important to begin research on the UCEAP website to make sure that all deadlines are made. Applications for passports and visas may be required.

Currently, from the Department of African American Studies, Prof. Sam Mchombo along with Prof. Julie Shackford-Bradley from Peace & Conflict Studies lead the UCEAP trip to Kenya. This trip is an extension of the Swahili language courses offered through our department as well.
