Program Overview

Program Description:

The two-year Research Master’s in African Studies is the only programme of its kind in the Netherlands. As a study which straddles the — artificial — frontier between the Humanities and Social Sciences, you will be exposed to many aspects of life on the African continent and will develop knowledge and skills which cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries. As a student of this research-based programme, you will specialise both in a particular theme and in a particular region of Africa — a prerequisite if you want to move onto PhD research — while still retaining a wider disciplinary and continental view which will give your specialisation its relevant context.
The master’s is run jointly by the African Studies Centre and Leiden University.
