Students at the School in Cameroon take a combination of Middlebury Program courses and courses at Middlebury’s host university, the Université catholique d’Afrique centrale (UCAC).

Middlebury Program Courses

Each semester, students will take two program courses that focus on culture, social sciences, language, and literature. These will be taught in French by local faculty. Other subjects may be available upon request.  Learn more about the courses that are currently offered:

Theories et Practiques Culturelles is a .5 unit class and may be combined with a 24 hour university course for 1 unit of Middlebury credit; other center courses receive 1 unit of Middlebury credit. 

University Courses

The Université catholique d’Afrique centrale (UCAC) enrolls 4,000 students. You’ll take intensive courses, generally in modules of 4-6 weeks, alongside Cameroonian students. Students enroll in roughly 4 units of credit total in the program. 36 credit hour UCAC classes convert to 1 unit of Middlebury credit, so students who elect the 24 credit hour courses must take more than one to equal 1 unit:
