Arranging a graduate degree program with a concentration in African studies is possible in a number of departments and programs in the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Music and Dance. Anthropology, biology, dance, environmental studies, French (in the Romance languages department), folklore and public culture, geography, history, international studies, linguistics, political science, and sociology have faculty members with expertise and strong interest in this area.
Students should consult with the affiliated faculty members regarding such arrangements.

|Approved graduate course in African history||4|
|Approved graduate course on issues in contemporary Africa||4|
