Program Description:



The University of Botswana is located in the heart of Botswana’s capital city, Gaborone (est. population 300,000). The campus is within walking distance of government buildings, retail centers, night clubs, the national museum, and the national soccer stadium. The city has excellent public transportation networks. Also, students can travel throughout the country and around southern Africa on buses which leave daily from the central bus station.


While the Botswana people are the majority population in the country, there are numerous other ethnic groups ranging from the San or Bushman, who were hunter gatherers, to a number of other Bantu groups including the Kalanga and the Bayei, plus a substantial number of persons from ethnic groups in Zimbabwe. English is widely spoken in the country since all education is conducted in English beginning in the fourth year of elementary school. Political freedom insures that frank and intense debates occur on regular basis concerned with issues related to economic, social and political development.
