African Studies Cluster

This African Studies Cluster supplements graduate training among students interested in African Studies by providing:

  • a common coursework structure integrated with students' departmental curricula
  • resources for student research, including travel abroad
  • interdisciplinary venues to present work in progress and to receive feedback from faculty and fellow students
  • opportunities for collaborative research

Students interested in pursuing a PhD in Art History, Comparative Literary Studies, English, French and Italian, History, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Religion, and Sociology are encouraged to find a second intellectual "home" in this interdisciplinary cluster.

Matriculating graduate students interested in participating in this cluster should indicate their interest when they apply to their respective graduate programs. Information on cluster requirements for participating graduate students can be found by visiting the Requirements page for this cluster.
