The African Studies Program has a team of excellent faculty with expertise in both research and teaching. I have learned a lot from the coursework and interaction with both the staff and faculty in African Studies. As an African student from Kenya, the African Studies Program is my home away from home.Susan Kavaya, International student from Kenya; Ph.D. student in the School of Public Health; Ph.D. minor in African Studies; completed an M.A. in African Studies
