Study Abroad

The Center for African Studies offers study abroad in Africa programs through the Pitt Global Experiences Office. Although study abroad in Africa is not a requirement for the certificate in African Studies, we encourage students to take advantage of the opportunities to study in an African country to augment their learning through both the formal and informal experiential setting in another cultural context. Study abroad offers a powerful personal and intellectual experience to advance academics. Students may choose from more than 150 programs in 50 countries. The programs are designed to give students an opportunity to experience language, history, art, culture, fashion, food and the arts in real time. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to explore, learn, understand, connect with new people and appreciate cultural diversity.
