African Studies: Critical Perspectives on Society, Politics, Culture (M.A.)
The Master of African Studies offers students a uniquely interdisciplinary social sciences approach to the study of Africa. The programme critically engages the social, political and cultural dynamics shaping the region, its history and its entanglements in a globalized world.
Our Masters in African Studies: Critical Perspectives on Society, Politics and Culture is top-class, well-conceived, with Africa and Africans at the centre not as objects but subjects of study. Africa is a legitimate epistemic site of knowledge and indeed the cradle of humankind and this course enables an epistemic travel to Africa. Interdisciplinarity is the driving force, decolonization and depatriachization is in-built, and multiplicity of Africa is the intellectual adventure that you experience through and through. The teaching staff is multi-disciplinary, affording and exposing you to diverse intellectual and academic traditions in African and Africanist scholarship. Thematically you have a combo. Pedagogically, you will be taken through the pleasures of learning, unlearning and relearning.
