Cultural Enrichment & Orientation in Tanzania
“Africa is so full of life, with so many exotic creatures and breathtaking views. I have never been anywhere as beautiful or as intriguing, and I doubt I ever will be again.”
- Caroline Lucas, Chapman University student, studied in Tanzania with Arcadia.
Arcadia requires undergraduate semester participants to complete assigned pre-readings and participate in online discussions aimed at helping them to learn more about East African culture and society before they go. Please visit this page for information on the Tanzania Pre-Departure Sessions.
All semester students will take part in a multi-day mid-semester excursion. The cost of the excursion is included in your program fee (students are responsible for the cost of some meals and out-of-pocket expenses). Specific locations and activities vary by semester; past locations include Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar, and Bagamoyo. More detailed information will be provided during orientation.
Events and excursions designed to enhance your understanding of Tanzanian culture will take place throughout the semester.
Our Tanzanian staff will discuss these in detail—including dates and how to reserve your place—during orientation. All Arcadia excursions attach great importance to the notions of safety, experiential learning and cultural understanding.
