The African Studies program is an excellent way to develop geographically focused international expertise and to learn about the fascinating diversity of Africa's 54 nations. It gives students essential background and foundational skills for graduate work in anthropology, history, and any number of other disciplines. Combined with majors or minors such as journalism, economics, anthropology, environmental studies, or linguistics, African studies prepares students for possible positions with national or international organizations involved in Africa. Students preparing for careers in international health or medicine may combine the African Studies major or minor with a major in biology or another science, or with the minor in Science, Culture and Society (IDS).
