Bachelor Area Studies Asia/Africa

The BA Regional Studies Asia/Africa is coordinated by the entire Institute for Asian and African Studies (IAAW). The institute has six departments, one of which is African Studies. Three other departments are cross-disciplinary/cross-sectional in nature. All departments that are cross disciplinary/cross-sectional contribute courses that make up the BA teaching program.

A BA in African Studies, alone, does not exist, however it is possible to specialise in the region, Africa, as part of the BA degree. This can be achieved by choosing specific courses/modules with an African focus and by acquiring at least 30 study points, as well as learning an African language (worth of 40 study points). Also it is required to write your BA thesis with focus on Africa. Then it is equal to other African studies degrees on BA level.

You find more detailed information on the pages of B.A. Area Studies Asia/Africa.

All students studying at the HU-Berlin are required to register for each module, directly, on AGNES. The individual courses for the BA Regional Studies Asia/Africa  are found here.

A catalogue of all courses for the current semester that are organized by the Department of African Studies, focusing on  BA Regional Studies Asia/Africa, can be found in the section "Course Catalogue".
