The Bachelor of Arts program African Verbal and Visual Arts (AVVA) offers insights into the scholarly fields of African languages, African pieces of literature, African arts, and media in Africa.
The curriculum provides students with a multifaceted knowledge of African cultural matters, which are at the same time global matters. It also reacts to the developments in the global job market by providing its graduates with unique intercultural expertise.
Africa is a continent with a thousand and one facets. We offer this innovative, multidisciplinary and market-oriented Bachelor’s program as a solid starting point towards understanding the intricacies of the African continent and building expertise in African studies.
Our curriculum enables students to acquire knowledge in four key branches of African studies: Languages; Literatures (in African languages as well as Anglophone and Francophone African literature); Media; and Arts (both modern and contemporary). We offer theoretical, methodological and practical tools for study, which prepare the student to critically engage with the perspectives needed to deal with African cultural milieus, ideas, and forms of expression.
