This faculty-led opportunity is part of a new general education and Liberal Studies Option (LSO) course offered in winter 2020: Canada in a Global World: Citizenship, Migration and Belonging. As part of the course, students can expand their learning on the topic of global migration and immigration with an international experience to Senegambia. Students will learn firsthand about the role Senegambia played in the forced migration of millions of people to the Americas and beyond, and the different elements of this historical trajectory, including political, cultural and socioeconomic developments. This program will culminate with a student conference at the University of The Gambia on this topic. In addition to the rich learning, students will have the opportunity to indulge in wildlife, sun, sand, sea and nature, as the Senegambia region is not only home to the UNESCO historical heritage slave forts, but also to rich natural beauty and ecological culture.
