Program Information

The African Studies program provides students with the opportunity to pursue their interest in Africa as a double major or minor alongside another discipline. It is also possible to take a series of courses that complement their specialization in another subject area. Students in the program usually take an interest not only in the broad range of thematic academic issues of the program but also in the wider issues which have an impact on Africa and its peoples. This interest is represented through a newsletter, events mounted by the program in conjunction with students, faculty and often the community and outside institutions. The program is designed to give you a broad theoretical framework and an awareness of the importance of international, gender and equity issues.
