South Africa

Port Elizabeth, situated on the Indian Ocean near the southern tip of the African continent, has a population of over one million and is South Africa's fifth largest city. Students study in classrooms at Nelson Mandela University (NMU) where they choose from seminar courses designed specifically for the CSB/SJU program including political science, literature, South African music, and marine biology.  In addition, all students enroll in the Study Abroad Seminar taught by their CSB/SJU faculty director. CSB/SJU students have full access to library, computer lab, recreation and sports facilities with South African and other international students at NMU.  Many choose to get involved with the local clubs and organizations.  Service Learning is a major component of this program. All students spend 6 to 8 hours per week at one of our three service locations. Students live in apartments which overlook the beach and are located approximately two miles from NMU's campus.
