The research master's in African Studies at Leiden University is unique in continental Europe for the interdisciplinary range of subjects offered and the long-term fieldwork in Africa.

The two year’s research master’s programme bridges the often artificially drawn boundaries between the humanities and the social sciences, combining perspectives from history, literary studies, anthropology, political science and economics, among others. As a result you have the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge about different aspects of the African continent and its peoples, while being challenged to go beyond the boundary constraints of any of the more traditional disciplines focusing on Africa. Small classes ensure that you have plenty of direct contact with your lecturers and a high level of guidance and support throughout your studies.

An important aspect of this programme is developing your ability to conduct original and interdisciplinary fieldwork research. You have the opportunity to spend six months doing fieldwork research in Africa or an Africa-related setting elsewhere, and six months to analyse, write and publish your own research project.The programme is taught by leading African Studies scholars with each unique areas of specialisation. They will further guide you in developing and carrying out research in your specific area of interest.
