The University of Ghana

The University of Ghana is the oldest and largest of the thirteen Ghanaian national public universities. The original emphasis was on the liberal arts, social sciences, law, basic science, agriculture, and medicine. However, as part of a national educational reform program, the university’s curriculum was expanded to provide more technology-based and vocational courses as well as postgraduate training.
