Program Description:

Anticipated May 8-May 25, 2017

This study program will follow the story of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa.  Current Wheaton College students were born after 1994, when Democracy supplanted Apartheid (1948-1994). For nearly five decades (1948-1994) Apartheid depended upon laws that disenfranchised 80% of its population, brutally suppressed political dissent, implemented a myriad of racist laws—all in the name of anti-Communism and in the name of Christ on the African continent.  President Nelson Mandela, political dissident and former Sunday School teacher, relinquished hatred and revenge while serving a lifetime prison sentence.  Students will study the Mandela Democracy legacy started in 1994.  The study tour will focus on three regions in South Africa: (i) the commercial and administrative capitals of Johannesburg and Pretoria, (ii) the Kruger National Park, and (iii) Cape Town area.  Students will have opportunities to interact with families through homestays, meet culturally-diverse South Africans from all walks of life, visit some of the earliest humanoid fossil sites on earth, as well as places of historical and recreational significance. This personalized study tour is arranged by Wheaton College’s first indigenous African faculty member. Expect to return home a transformed person.

Anticipated Fees: $2930 (subject to change; does not include airfare to/from South Africa; requires minimum enrollment by February 15, 2017); A $325 confirmation deposit is due within two weeks of acceptance and is non-refundable after February 15, 2017.
