Each semester the University of Wisconsin-Madison offers nearly 70 courses focusing on Africa. The African Studies Program core curriculum includes disciplines across campus.
Core courses contain more than 66% Africa‐related content and fulfill the requirements of the African Studies Certificate and FLAS.
Extended core courses contain at least 25% African content but cannot be used towards the certificate or FLAS without special approval from the African Studies Program advisor and the course’s instructor. Requests must be made and approved by the second Friday of the semester in which the course in question will be taken. Request forms are available at the African Studies Program office.
