Enrich your understanding of Africa by pursuing an undergraduate certificate, delving into language study or even studying abroad.  

Certificate in African Studies

Princeton’s Certificate Program in African Studies provides opportunities to all Princeton students, regardless of major, to learn about the continent.

Study Abroad

Is there a better opportunity to learn about Africa than to visit? The Program in African Studies and PIIRS offer students several opportunities to study abroad in both East and West Africa. 

Language Study

Swahili and Twi are African languages offered at Princeton. Completion of all four terms of a sequence will satisfy the University language requirement.
