This English-taught master’s programme builds on knowledge relating to the diversity and creativity in languages, literatures, arts, and media in Africa. The interdisciplinary orientation and subject combinations make the programme one-of-a-kind.

Profile of the Master’s Programme

In addition to learning two African languages, modules cover theory, methods, and specialized areas. Students choose among Bambara, Hausa, Swahili, or Xhosa, thus providing a foundation for academic and communicative practice. Furthermore, theory, methods, and topical areas of emphasis enable students to investigate current, research-relevant issues relating to the Humanities and Cultural studies in Africa.

Apart from pursuing further academic training at universities and research institutions, graduates will be qualified to work in a range of different fields. Possible career paths include:

  • An academic career at higher education institutions or research institutions
  • Intercultural cooperation and cultural work (e.g. the Goethe Institute, foundations/trusts, museums, galleries, libraries)
  • Journalism and public relations
  • Development cooperation
  • Private sector employment (with a focus on the African continent)
