Your experience in Uganda will be a spectacular lesson in authentic relationships. These relationships—at home, at school and throughout the Ugandan community—encourage deeper thought about your own cultural identity. Whether it’s social work, global health, ministry, or just a deeper yearning to explore the intricacy of cross-cultural relationships, Uganda will bring you there. The USP academic curriculum is designed to help you process and comprehend the impact of this intercultural experience in your own life.
