Graduate School-New Brunswick

The graduate certificate program in African studies by the Center for African Studies (CAS) is designed for graduate students who would like to pursue a concentration in African studies as part of their regular graduate studies. Those who fulfill the requirements may be awarded a certificate in African studies upon completion of their degree. Some requirements for the certificate may be used to satisfy the student's own graduate degree requirements. These requirements are as follows:

1. Successful completion with a minimum grade-point average of 3.0 of the following 3-credit current issues courses when taught by a member of CAS and approved by the certificate program director:

16:016:501 Current Issues in the Study of Africa (3)
16:070:524,525 World Ethnographic Areas--Africa I,II (3,3)
16:195:608 Advanced Topics in Comparative Literature (3)
16:450:508 Environment and Development (3)
16:450:509 Uneven Development (3)
16:450:605 or 606 Geography Seminar (3)
16:510:625 Colloquium in African History (3)

2. Successful completion with a minimum grade-point average of 3.0 of one of the following 3-credit interdisciplinary research courses when taught by a member of CAS and approved by the certificate program director:

16:016:502 Interdisciplinary Research in African Studies (3)
16:070:506 Research Design and Methods in Social/Cultural Anthropology (3)
16:450:602 Field and Research Methods in Geography (3)
16:510:633 Seminar in African History (3)

3. Successful completion with a minimum grade-point average of 3.0 of at least three additional semester courses on Africa from among approved graduate-level cognate courses (9 credits in total). At least one of these courses must be outside the student's degree program. Three of those credits may be accrued through independent study.

4. Proficiency in any African language demonstrated through completion of the second year of language study in classroom courses or tutorials offered by the program in African languages and literatures or an equivalent program, or by taking a language exam arranged through the Center for African Studies. In exceptional circumstances a student may petition to have another language accepted instead.

5. Completion of a major piece of writing on a topic related to Africa (master's thesis, dissertation, published article, or two substantial research papers).

Only students already admitted to a degree program in the Graduate School-New Brunswick may participate in the certificate program. Courses in African studies are offered by a number of graduate programs. Further information is available from the director of the graduate certificate program in African studies.
