Our students complete their studies with a deep understanding and appreciation for the complex mosaics that constitute Africa, but they are also able to think globally. By understanding Africa, students have a unique perspective on international political and economic systems, as well as cultural trends. Our graduates acquire a skill set that includes critical thinking, sensitivity to cultural nuances and differences, knowledge of international relations, and a passion for advancing mutual understanding and respect across social and political contexts. African Studies students are able to think "out of the box" and approach current issues and developments with a critical eye. At BGU, African Studies students are among the most engaged and committed students, and their impact is felt both on campus and in the community at large.
