Program Overview

Program Description:
Georgia State offers many summer and maymester programs led and taught by Georgia State professors. These programs tend to be focused on a particular topic or theme and range from 10 to 20 participants, though some are larger. Students participate in lectures, site visits, excursions, and tours as part of the program. These programs usually last between two and six weeks. Students find these programs a great way to really get to know their professors and other GSU students while earning GSU credits and grades. Students do not have to study on a program related to their major, but they certainly can. Financial aid and scholarships are available.

The program "Exploring the Ethiopian Educational System" will give participants a chance to learn about schooling in Ethiopia by visiting public and private elementary schools. They will learn not only about the educational system, but the role of education in the country's social system. Participants will consider the similarities and differences between the educational systems in Ethiopia and the U.S. and reflect on how they might apply what they learned in Ethiopia to their work in U.S. classrooms. In addition to visiting schools, participants will engage in various cultural activities such as museums and tours, and immerse in cultural traditions like the Ethiopian coffee ceremony, dance, music and art.

Setting Description:
Participants will stay in a comfortable, double-occupancy hotel.
