Program Description:

CIEE Arts and Sciences Program in Gaborone, Botswana

With friendly faces and an array of university courses in biological sciences, business, engineering, African languages, media studies, and more, Gaborone – or Gab as it’s locally known – is a fine place to connect with the people of Botswana. Homestays, community projects, and adventures that reveal the country’s unforgettable beauty make this a stand-out study-abroad experience.

Study abroad in Gaborone and you'll:
  • Meet with village leaders and join family gatherings and cultural traditions during a three-day stay in rural Botswana.
  • Safari in Chobe National Park, where elephants, hippos, crocs, lions, leopards, and a mind-boggling number of birds roam free.
  • Practice Setswana while you lead research or a community project that’s close to your heart.

This program helps students join the campus community as they develop Setswana language skills and take unique courses. Volunteer opportunities and excursions help students get to know community members. Together, these pieces give students a solid understanding of contemporary Botswana culture and its role in southern Africa.
