African Studies has an orientation towards the humanities. Students can choose from three tracks: History and Anthropology, Literature and film (art), and Linguistics. It is also possible to combine the tracks. Students can choose between Berber and Swahili, languages that are taught divided in courses over the three years, and students will also learn a language of their choice that will be followed during the stay abroad.
The first year is the same for everybody, except for the choice of language. There will be special attention to develop digital research and publication skills. At the end of the first year students make a choice for a track, or combination of two tracks. Also students can choose between different options to go to a University or knowledge institute in Africa.
In the third year the students will work in semester 1 on a project, that demands students to apply their skills on a more practice oriented theme and end product.
