Minor in African Studies

The Schools of Modern Languages; Economics; International Affairs; Literature, Media and Communications; and Public Policy offer a minor in African Studies. This interdisciplinary minor connects studies of all African regions and countries (North, West, Central, East, South), their languages, their cultures, and their peoples — both concurrently in their national and international relationships as well as longitudinally — over the course of history. This minor is designed for undergraduates who will enter a wide range of careers that can lead directly or indirectly to interactions with the people, social organizations and businesses, and governments of Africa, both abroad and in the U.S.

For further information please email the minor’s advisor, Chris Ippolito (cippolito6@gatech.edu).
