A master’s degree in African Studies provides you with broad expertise in African matters and culture, while offering you the freedom to pursue individual interests.
In addition to our African Studies M.A., we joined forces with several of IU’s professional schools to create dual and joint graduate degrees that allow you to study Africa while mastering skills focused on your career goals. You can pursue dual/joint African Studies degrees in Library Science, Public Affairs, and Public Health.
A graduate degree in African Studies can aid you in a number of fields and careers. Our students are prepared for the changing job markets of the 21st century and know how to turn their passions into a career. Our degrees teach skills that are needed in many professions, from government and business to education and journalism. The Ph.D. minor is designed to complement your doctoral studies, providing an excellent way to enrich your graduate studies and expand your area of expertise to encompass an Africa-focus.
