Any undergraduate student at the University of Pittsburgh may enroll in the African Studies Certificate program. Students interested are encouraged to enroll early in their studies to give them ample time to develop a plan of study that will allow for timely completion of the certificate requirements. Students should first schedule an appointment to meet with the African Studies Program’s undergraduate student advisor within the semester of enrollment to discuss plans. The advisor will answer any questions about the program and provide important guidance.
To enroll in the certificate program, students go through the MyPitt Global App (Suitable), the student platform that will help track progress throughout the program including completing the certificate and making it easy to record other global experiences students have while on campus or abroad.
To download the iPhone app or the Android app, search for "Suitable" in an app store. Open the app and move through the process of setting a temporary password.
To access the Suitable platform via a web browser, visit Suitable and follow the log in instructions.
