African Studies



Many African studies majors have gone on to become noted journalists, professors, writers, and anthropologists. Together they have brought the complex and diverse cultures of African peoples and countries to the world’s attention. 

Long overlooked by North American universities, African studies has finally come into its own. Students and professors alike investigate issues such as ethnic strife, the environment, and health care. They also study the powerful influence of African music, art, and literature across the globe.
