Interdisciplinary African Studies, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

Africa is more than a geographical entity in Europe's neighbourhood. If we examine the relationship of the two more closely, we find countless political, cultural, religious, social and historical interconnections. The Bachelor's programme "Interdisciplinary African Studies" illuminates these dynamics from different perspectives and combines the disciplines of social and cultural anthropology, sociology, political science, history and religious studies. In addition, the curriculum can be supplemented by the diverse offerings of the African focus at the University of Bayreuth.

This degree programme is taught in German.

Good knowledge of German is an essential prerequisite to successfully completing the degree programme. Proof of German language proficiency at B2 level or equivalent is required for admission. For detailed information, please see the German version of the study programme site.
