The Bachelor of Arts programme African Verbal and Visual Arts (AVVA) offers insights into the scholarly fields of African languages, African literatures, African arts, and media in Africa. The curriculum provides students with a multifaceted knowledge of African cultural matters, which at the same time, are also global matters. It also responds to the developments in the global job market by providing its graduates with a unique intercultural expertise.
Africa is a continent with a thousand and one facets. We offer this innovative, multidisciplinary and market-oriented bachelor’s programme as a solid starting point towards understanding the dynamics 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 literatures); Media; and Arts (both modern and contemporary). We equip our students with theoretical, methodological and practical tools for study, thereby preparing them for critical engagement with the full diversity of African cultural milieus, ideas and forms of expressions.
Structure of the Bachelor’s Programme
The programme is organised into modules reflecting the multiplicity of African cultural affairs. Compulsory course modules introduce methods of art studies, media studies, literary studies and linguistics. A practice-oriented project, an overview of the linguistic landscape in Africa and an interdisciplinary module provide students with both academic and practical skills.
Elective compulsory course modules cover different fields of specialization and advanced seminars. The students will choose one of the disciplines in which they envisage writing their BA thesis. In addition, they will have to take at least one advanced seminar from one of the other disciplines.
