SYE4501/INST4045 Africa

This guide provides resources and support for the May term study abroad course in Malawi.

Course Description

SYE Africa is a service-learning travel senior year experience in which students bring to bear both their major and general education programs of study to seek understanding of contemporary Africa. SYE Africa offers a powerful life-changing and life-affirming experience that serves as a capstone to students' undergraduate experience as well as a steppingstone to life beyond Otterbein. A single Africa national will be selected each year. These will include but are not anticipated to be limited to Rwanda and Malawi.
