The MA in African Studies – unique in the Netherlands – is a multidisciplinary study, which offers you the chance to take an in-depth look at the African continent from a variety of perspectives. You will study the major historical, cultural, socio-economical and political factors currently affecting the continent, which will give you a solid knowledge base upon which to build post-graduation.
You have the opportunity to develop your own profile, both in the coursework and in writing your master’s thesis.
During this programme you eventually choose to focus on one of two main disciplines:
• African History
• African Literature
