Through coursework and community engagement, you will focus on issues of memory, reconciliation, development, and nation building as they relate to South Africa’s social and political transformations in the more than 20 years after apartheid. Choose between three different program tracks. Work with professional journalists from Peabody Award–winning Round Earth Media to produce a feature-length story to be considered for publication in media outlets, complete an internship with a local organization, or conduct independent research and produce a substantial academic paper. The program includes multiple excursions, including comparative visits to neighboring Mozambique and Swaziland, which have pursued different paths in their own recent histories of independence.
