Webster’s Ghana campus hosted its first official day of classes on Tuesday, March 18.
Thirteen students are enrolled in courses at the campus, according to an article on Webster Today. Students were welcomed to the campus by Webster President Elizabeth Stroble via a video message at an orientation the night before courses started.
While graduate courses started on March 18, undergraduate courses do not begin until Aug. 25.
The Ghana campus offers an MBA, an MA in International Relations and three undergraduate degrees: international business, international relations and media communications. Programs offered at the Ghana campus will be aligned with Webster’s campuses in the U.S. and abroad.
Webster University Ghana is located in the country’s capital, Accra, a major West African hub on the coast of the Gulf of Guinea. It is Webster’s first campus in Africa. On its about page, the campus is said to offer access to an American-style higher education.
“Students from Ghana, West Africa and around the world will earn prestigious bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business, international relations or media communications at the Accra campus,” Ghana Campus Director Thomas Oates said.
Webster is currently exploring housing and study abroad options for the Ghana campus, and expects to take steps toward those options in the future.
