This program is offered in collaboration with the University of Buea (UB). Together, AEA and UB selected the course offerings, which are taught by the faculty of UB, a highly qualified and diversified staff serving a student body of 12,000. AEA and UB also co-designed the Community Development Seminar, which is the lead course for the program.
Each student on this program enrolls in the core seminar, Community Development in Cameroon, which is co-taught by the UB Lead Faculty and AEA Academic Coordinator. In addition, each student selects three courses from the regular offerings of the University of Buea, allowing our students to become peers with local students and to learn from the UB professors.
