There are a number of degree and certificate opportunities in African Studies that compliment a range of fields and careers. We offer three undergraduate minors and one certificate. Our graduate program includes a master’s degree in African Studies, a Ph.D. minor in African Studies, and three dual/joint graduate degrees in partnership with several of IU's professional schools.
Breadth & depth of knowledge
Our interdisciplinary courses span the histories, cultures, and languages of Africa and the diaspora. You’ll gain valuable skills that will prepare you for a career in government, business, academe, education, the non-profit sector, or another career option requiring global competence -- whether in the U.S., on the African continent, or anywhere else you may go.
Multidisciplinary & Global
Our program is comprised of faculty in the arts, sciences, and professional schools who teach and engage with research throughout the continent and its diaspora. We promote the study of Africa with a global perspective by cooperating with other area studies programs, international centers, and departments inside and outside Indiana University.
