Program Information

"I gained my love for Africa sitting in Dr. Day's Politics of Africa class. Since then every class I have taken within the department has only increased my love for the continent and increased my awareness of the unlimited potential that exists there. Our program is still relatively small but this has only allowed for the opportunity to work closely with incredible professors who have personal experience in a variety of jobs centered on Africa. And with amazing experiences like African Union and the Morocco study abroad, this program allows students the opportunity to explore what options there are far beyond undergrad".

“I am grateful to have found the African Studies program. I was able to easily incorporate it into my political science major, and the distinguished, passionate African Studies professors offer a unique perspective from their own time on the continent. Also, with such a small department, I have been given many opportunities to work side-by-side with professors on projects such as independent studies and the Model African Union."
