PLNU South Africa

NEW - Full Fall Semester Program! 

South Africa - Sponsored by the CJR

Travel to South Africa after studying the country’s cultures, history, politics, economics and Christianity for months before you even step foot on a plane.

You will spend four weeks in South Africa living in peoples’ homes and experiencing contemporary life in South Africa. This trip is the incredible opportunity to visit many of the historic sites you read about in class such as Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.  Other important sites include an AIDS clinic, rural and urban schools, and a soccer stadium.

This program is hosted by the Center for Justice and Reconciliation and the Center for International Development.
