African Studies Academic Programs

Candidates for the FLAS fellowships are expected to specialize in African area studies. They may major in any discipline, preferably those represented by faculty of the Center. Each semester, FLAS fellows must take one course in African language and one non-language area study course during the fall and spring academic year sessions. African Language courses for FLAS must be taken for 4 credit hours for Beginning or Intermediate proficiency levels and for 3 credit hours for Advanced levels each semester. Undergraduate FLAS fellows must study the language at the Intermediate or Advanced level (i.e., undergraduate students cannot receive FLAS fellowship to study an African Language at the Beginning or Elementary level).
