PhD Programs in Social Sciences Area studies African Studies

Courses in African studies focus on the advancement of the continent of Africa from social, cultural, political and economic points of view. These programs can include classes on topics as varied as specific regions or countries, history, current events and the African diaspora.

South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is a country located at the southern tip of Africa. It is divided into nine provinces. South Africa is not only a jumping off point, it is itself a fantastic destination rich in culture, fauna & flora and history.

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
