BLST 4010 African Country Project

A detailed study of a selected African country paying attention to issues such as history, political organization, literature, art, social systems, religion, position of women, economic development and agriculture, education, health, and the environment. This will be a research course done by independent study, with the coordinator of African Studies serving as supervisor, though another faculty member with expertise in the field may be appointed. In consultation with the coordinator the student may decide to focus research on a major issue or a few major issues. A student can also fulfill the requirements of the African Country Project by preparing for and attending one South Eastern Model of the African Union. (Cross-listed as AFST 4010.)
