Tunisia: Learn and Serve
Conducted in English
Home of the ancient city of Carthage, Tunisia is a blend of various civilizations resulting from the passage of Phoenicians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Turks, Spanish, and French. Today, this hospitable North African jewel is increasingly attracting millions of tourists eager to enjoy its beaches, desert, and sports. Whether you prefer to explore this land of colors, contrasts, spices and scents, or walk on its sandy beaches and its warm Saharan desert, Tunisia has it all.
Learn and Serve in Tunisia is a unique summer education abroad opportunity that allows undergraduates to study in the Middle East/North African region and engage in an intense service learning experience with Tunisian university students.
