Program Description:

Is This Program Right For You?

Are you a student who is excited to see what life in Kenya is like, but doesn't want to commit to a whole semester?  Are you a student who wants some academic excitement but can't take time out of their packed schedule during the school year?  Do you want to have an academic internship that has nothing to do with your major or minor?

Students who wish to experience Kenya for a short period of time can attend this new summer internship program in Nairobi!  AU Nairobi summer students live with homestay families, intern four days each week, and attend individual seminars that complement the experiential component of the program. This six-week program is worth three credits.
