African Drum and Dance Study Abroad in Ghana – Winter Term

Hard to believe fall is already upon us. With winter close behind, I’m looking forward to warming up in Ghana this January!

Our latest trip offering, the Winter Drum and Dance Field Study in Ghana, West Africa (January 2-14, 2012), is the perfect way to learn West African music and dance while getting to see the world. Check out the video below, then go to the online application on the UMass International Programs Office website. There’s also more info here.

Ghana Trippers on Screen, at Mass. International Education Conference

The new TWM/UMass in Ghana promo spot is UP! Hailed by the New York Times as “a feast for the senses” (okay, that’s a lie) and “better than being there” by National Geographic (also a lie), the 2nd edition of our virtual tour has been updated with exciting new Africa footage (truthbomb!), along with testimonials from educators that crossed the pond summer 2010 (ka-boom!).

Not one to stand in the way of a PR juggernaut, I’ll be presenting this Friday, November 19th at the Massachusetts Council for International Education’s annual conference (list of member organizations here), where I’ll be promoting the trip and talking about the exciting field of global continuing education, all with the help of an all-star cast of TWM/UMass in Ghana alumni.  More on that to come.
