Graduate Credentials

The Center for African Studies offers two certificates for graduate students: the African Studies Certificate and the Certificate in Mediterranean Studies. The African Studies Certificate is designed for students who wish to intensify their study of African generally and any specific African countries of their interest. Students from any professional schools or departments have the opportunity to participate in the program through courses, internships, workshops and study abroad in Africa. The Certificate in Mediterranean Studies offers students the opportunity to study the region defined by its connection to the Mediterranean Sea and receive a credential – either a Certificate in Mediterranean Studies or a Certificate in Advanced Mediterranean Studies – certifying their completion of a set of relevant area studies coursework and achievement of a certain level of proficiency in a world language relevant to that region.
