African Culture & Society, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

The interdisciplinary programme "African Culture & Society" is aimed squarely at students with an interest in Africa from a cultural and social science perspective. The focus is on the study of contemporary societies in Africa; while the subjects of social and cultural anthropology, sociology in Africa, and African politics and development policy are at the centre of the programme.

After a period of volunteering in South Africa, I was looking for courses of study that would allow me to continue to deal with the African continent. I was enthusiastic about the study programme 'African Culture and Society': The combination of social anthropology, sociology, and development policy with reference to Africa promised exactly what I had hoped for. The wide range of African languages that can be learned here is another great plus. The familiar atmosphere and the direct contact with professors and lecturers are the highlights of our study programme in addition to the varied subject matter. The best proof that I feel very much at home in Bayreuth is that I am still here and am now studying the Master's programme.
