African Studies

Minor in African Studies

African Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Africa, as well as the African diaspora.

A detailed description of the program, the approved list of courses, the names of advisors and affiliated faculty, and other information may be obtained from the AFST Coordinating Committee. Contact the Arts Advising Office, 604.822.4028, to contact the Chair of the AFST Coordinating Committee, or visit African Studies.
