What makes our programme unique:
- The freedom to choose your own individual study focus, while centering Africa as a site of knowledge production
- An interdisciplinary emphasis on the social sciences, combining the insights of sociology and politics, social and cultural anthropology, history, and the study of religion, each with a focus on Africa
- A university on the forefront of interdisciplinary African research in Europe, with dozens of professors and lecturers doing Africa-related research, a vast collection of Africa-specific book and media resources available through the university library, and the prestigious “Africa Multiple” Cluster of Excellence and the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies making UBT a hub for African Studies
