Master in African Studies Africa is experiencing radical changes. Whether it is in the economic, social, environmental demographic or political sphere, African societies are evolving fast. This Master’s programme provides the critical distance needed to understand these transformations in all their complexity. The curriculum stands out for its interdisciplinarity, combining approaches from the social, natural and human sciences. It also provides a long-term perspective and gives students the opportunity to study Africa not in isolation, but in terms of the continent’s interactions with the rest of the world. The Master begins with the interdisciplinary core curriculum. After the first semester, students can choose between two areas of specialisation: “Environment and societies”, which focuses on environmental challenges and the way they influence life in society; and “States, societies and development”, which examines the formation of states since the colonial era and their role in development-related issues at various levels. Geneva, which houses many international organisations, is a unique place to study these dynamics. This Master’s programme also places particular emphasis on experience in the field, and students can take advantage of exchanges with UNIGE’s partner universities in Africa.
