About

Do you want to develop a set of strong, widely applicable analytical, practical and communication skills, while at the same time specializing in a region of the globe of rising importance? As a graduate in African Studies you will accomplish both. We offer a master degree in African Studies at the University of Copenhagen. 

Overview

Africa is a continent undergoing dynamic transformation on many levels. It combines new potentials and ongoing challenges: economic innovation and growth alongside persistent poverty and environmental challenges, political democratisation alongside authoritarianism, social and cultural diversity and creativity alongside limited opportunities and exclusions.

Both the public and private sectors need candidates able to skillfully navigate the complexity of Africa and understand its relationship to the world.
