Africa Concentration

This is one of the world’s most dynamic and diverse regions. The African continent boasts some of the world’s fastest growing economies, vast natural resources, and incredible human and biological diversity. The African continent is more than three times the size of the United States and has 54 countries within it and thousands of ethnic groups. Despite economic growth, African countries continue to experience problems such as poverty, political instability, inadequate heath care, and limited access to education. Since these are issues of global concern, gaining knowledge and awareness of them enables you to work more effectively in professional contexts involving business, social justice issues, development, and more. (Note: An African concentration is possible but students must be prepared to study abroad or have a very flexible schedule to complete a concentration on Africa.)

To complete a Concentration on Africa, study abroad or a flexible schedule to take Metroversity classes will be needed.
