Spring and Fall 09 semesters will offer the same curriculum as Fall 08, but we will visit different villages and teach core courses in English, rather than French. The program, which began in 2004, accepts and accredits international undergraduates, advanced gap year students and also Senegalese students, who receive full scholarships on a work-study basis.
