As part of the International Year of Astronomy, 2009, the University of Arizona is offering the chance to study a course in astronomy in Ghana, focusing on African astronomy. Students will be given the chance to learn about downloading and using archival data as well as African views of the night skies.
The course will run from the 28th of December 2009 until January 8th 2010. After 12 days of coursework, there will follow a fortnight of follow up work, leading to 3-9 credits in Astronomy or Anthropology. The program will be based on the University of Cape Coast campus in the coastal Ghanaian city of Cape Coast. Click here for further details and to apply.
The program is part of a series of University of Arizona courses that take place anywhere in the world where an internet connection is available. Some, like this one, are open to nonUA students, who must go here to learn how to apply.
