Graduate Certificate Courses

**The list below is a useful guide showing courses that could count towards the African Studies Certificate. This is not a complete list of classes. For more information on if the class you are taking would count towards the certificate please read the information below and email africast@pitt.edu if you have any further questions.

 

**Any graduate class can count towards the African Certificate if there is at least 25% African content and individual students focus on an issue or country in Africa while doing their project/research paper for the class.

 

*For example* Jane took “Comparative Education” where the focus was education systems around the world. Two to Three weeks was devoted to reading African articles on education during the course of the semester, and Jane focused her 30 page research paper on Zambian education for middle school students. This class would count towards the certificate.
