Undergraduate Certificate

Pitt’s African Studies Undergraduate Certificate allows students in any major — from the arts and sciences to the professional schools — to enhance their program of study and complement their department major with international studies. The certificate is ideal for students interested in learning and gaining a broad interdisciplinary understanding of Africa as a world region, those who want to build expertise in African studies, including gaining intermediate-level competence in an African language.  

Successful completion of a certificate can provide an important building block for careers in the Foreign Service, government, business, law, academe, and public service.
