New! Wondering what ‘African Studies’ encompasses? Want a basic understanding of Africa in global perspective? From a variety of disciplinary approaches? Just want to learn something new? This course is for you!
With courses spanning the histories, contemporary realities, cultures, and languages of Africa and Africans in the diaspora, African Studies courses are interdisciplinary and designed to provide you with the global perspectives you need for your future career – wherever that may take you. You can choose from courses that will provide a regional overview of contemporary issues, choose to delve deep into an issue through one of our “Topics” courses, pursue the study of a language of the continent, or all the above. There are also more than 200 cross-listed courses offered by our African Studies affiliate faculty, providing students across IU, and in almost every discipline, opportunities to gain regional knowledge.
