Student counselling

Do you have any questions relating to your study options or conditions for admission to the Centre for African Studies? Do you need help with putting your curriculum together?  Or can we support you in the organisation of your internship?

We are glad to assist you in solving these and other problems that might emerge during your studies. Please contact Jacob Geuder or Veit Arlt in order to make an appointment.

In addition, you can put your questions to our lecturers during their consultation hours. Feel free to approach the following contact persons if you have questions about core subjects of the MA African Studies (office hours can be checked on the respective webpages):

Sociology/African Studies: Prof. Dr. Elísio Macamo
History: Prof. Dr. Julia Tischler
Social Anthropology: Prof. Dr. Till Förster
Epidemiology: Prof. Dr. Jürg Utzinger
Biogeography: Prof. Dr. Peter Nagel

If you need general bibliographical advice, we recommend Studying Africa: a guide to the sources, an extensive index of Africa-related scientific literature and weblinks.
