Welcome to the African Studies Institute website at The University of Georgia

The Institute provides benefits to students, faculty and staff encompassing the humanities, social sciences, physical, biological and agricultural sciences, as well as those from our professional schools, such as business, education, law, veterinaryCertificate presentation medicine, pharmacy, public health and environmental design. We provide classroom and practical experience and thoughtful discourse to students, undergraduates and graduates. We engage in original, collaborative research among faculty, and we encourage and support outreach/service learning opportunities for all with respect to Africa.

The African Studies Institute offers an undergraduate Certificate in African Studies and an undergraduate Minor in African Studies. In addition, the Institute supports the Minor in African Languages and Literatures and the Program in African Languages, Cultures and Literature in the department of Comparative Literature.
