Teaching

In terms of teaching, the University of Bayreuth offers BA and MA courses that have a continuous reference to Africa and are aimed at students who want to build up or deepen their expertise in a field of African studies. On the other hand, there are courses that enable a focus on Africa-related topics and address students who want to acquire additional African-related specialist knowledge.

The new international master’s course EIMAS (European Interdisciplinary Master African Studies) also offers an opportunity to specialize in interdisciplinary African studies. It is carried out in cooperation with the Université Bordeaux Montaigne in France and the Universidade do Porto in Portugal.

The Institute of African Studies provides information on Africa-related bachelor’s and master’s courses. You can find information about further academic qualifications as part of the BIGSAS graduate school here. Even advanced students in the bachelor's and master's degree benefit from the extensive international alumni network (afriBIAN) and our close cooperation with scientific institutions worldwide. The numerous guests of the IAS offer a wide range of additional offers for students and doctoral candidates.

All Africa-related courses currently available at the university are listed below. You will be taken to the respective course page, where you will find comprehensive information.
