CCCU Uganda Studies Program

Uganda Studies ProgramOne of the best reasons to consider the Uganda Studies Program is the access it will give you to Uganda Christian University (UCU). UCU is not only a top university in East Africa, it places Jesus Christ at the center of its mission. UCU serves as the base of operations for USP students throughout the semester. While you will be doing some traveling around the country, you will spend the majority of your time at UCU. Currently there are more than 2000 students drawn from across the region attending the university. Here are some other features of the program:

  • Live in Mukono, Uganda, a beautiful and safe campus 30 minutes from the capital, Kampala.
  • Take special courses in African culture, history and religion.
  • Share dorms and dialogue with Uganda Christian University Honours College students
  • Enjoy Uganda's wildlife-from the monkeys and parrots that live on campus to the teeming wildlife in Uganda's game parks.
  • Visit Lake Victoria and see the source of the Nile River.
  • Participate in ministry and service projects.
  • Earn up to 16 hours of credit

Student Life

All students participate in both Mukono and rural homestays. 'Homestay students' apply to live with a family for the duration of the semester. 'On-campus students' who stay in the dorms on campus spend two weeks living with a host family early on in the semester.  On rural homestays, all students spend a week living and learning with a a family in a rural Ugandan village.
