African Studies examines different aspects of African societies from historical and contemporary perspectives. It does this by integrating ideas from a variety of disciplines, including political science, sociology, fine arts, archaeology, anthropology, and biology. Courses cover areas such as: the performing and creative arts, tropical biology, the environment, archaeological sites and findings, politics and the economy, beliefs and lifestyles, and cultural traditions.
Students gain an insight into both the internal and external challenges that confront the people as well as the triumph of the human spirit. Students, therefore, gain critical skills for analyzing and functioning within African societies and in situations relating to the continent.
