About African Studies

About African Studies

The African Studies program was established in 1969 and was the first of its kind in Canada. It offers interdisciplinary courses leading to a minor or major concentration for students seeking to acquire a deeper understanding of the African continent and its diverse peoples. Students will acquire an appreciation of the contributions of Africa to world culture and civilization, and an awareness of the continent's current struggle to achieve development.
