The African Studies Center aims to foster the study of Africa at Boston University with the support of more than 90 affiliated faculty spread between 17 departments. We create unique opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students to study in Africa, whether the student’s interest might be in learning an African language or exploring a specific disciplinary topic. Opportunities also exist for students to cross-register in African Studies courses at other area colleges and universities, such as Harvard University, MIT, Northeastern University, Brandeis University, Tufts University, and Boston College
