Global & Area Studies Major

Global and Area Studies List

Effective fall 2006, the College of Social Science has offered an undergraduate Global and Area Studies Major with an African Studies Concentration. The program requires at least 41 credits including 24 credits in African Studies and two years of a language relevant to Africa. Available languages include Arabic, Hausa, Swahili, French, Portuguese, and possibly six-to-nine other African languages offered in faculty-supervised individualized instruction. A study abroad experience in Africa is strongly encouraged. This interdisciplinary program is an important new major or an additional major that will add knowledge about Africa, global systems, and global change to a disciplinary degree.
