Ghana Course

Study Abroad to Ghana 

Tulsa 2 GhanaDrs. Davis and Foley developed a course, “Responding to Interpersonal, Intercultural and Historical Violence.” This course was offered in 2011 and 2013 by the University of Tulsa Institute of Trauma, Adversity, and Injustice (TITAN) and cross-listed with Psychology, Sociology, and Women’s and Gender Studies. The course topics addressed experiences of interpersonal violence, individual and community experiences of war and displacements, and the historical violence of the slave trade in Ghana.  Classroom instruction, field visits, and service projects that provided students with hands on experience with the local culture were offered.  

TITAN plans to go back to Ghana in the summer of 2017! If you are interested in learning more about the course, please “like” our Tulsa2Ghana Facebook page here and/or email tu.titan.coordinator@gmail.com.
