The CIEE Arts and Sciences program at the University of Cape Town provides students with a range of academic and intellectual experiences that enable them to reflect upon the complexities and challenges facing the new South Africa. Through integration in local communities, students become participants, rather than mere observers of this dynamic and evolving environment. Through this process, students gain a comprehensive understanding of social relations within South Africa.
The CIEE Arts and Sciences program is the only CIEE program in Cape Town approved by Duke.




Duke requires that the transcript come from the University of Cape Town, and students are required to enroll 70-82 UCT/HEQF credits.
If students plan to take any course directly offered by CIEE (not taught at UCT), students are required to obtain a school of record transcript, for which CIEE charges $500. Please contact the study abroad advisor for this program if you plan to take a course offered by CIEE to ensure that you are enrolled in a full credit load.
