Welcome – Karibuni – Barka da zuwa

In dealing with Africa as an academic subject the Institute draws upon knowledge from the fields of history, the sociology of language, political studies, social anthropology and development economics.

We deal with the discursive, social, cultural, economic and political dynamics of Africa in its global and regional involvement, for instance with regard to medialization and digitality, peace and security, culture history and history, urbanization and migration, development and humanitarian intervention.

We offer degree courses in African Studies (BA and MA) and an MBA in Small Enterprise Promotion and Training, as well as training postgraduates for a doctorate.
