South Africa: A Cultural, Historical, and Social Analysis of Racism

The South Africa program is a 13-day seminar led by Notre Dame Psychology professor and South African native, Anre Venter. This intensive program is designed to incorporate both a cultural dimension and an academic component to allow for more meaningful engagement with the issue of social cognition and how it is related to racism. Through the course and cultural excursions, you will gain a deep understanding of South Africa's challenges as a nation. Students will also delve into conservation and how South Africa is taking major steps to preserve its amazing landscape and wildlife. Students will be stretched outside their mental comfort zone to confront tough issues, pushed to explore new ways of thinking, and grow holistically through this incredible journey.

Students could be eligible to receive one transferable college credit upon completion of the program. The program is limited to 18 students who will be rising high school seniors by the time of the program.
