The master programme consists of the following modules: Basic module (data collection and data processing, writing and editing of texts, presentations), specialisation module (here students can choose between African linguistics and African history). Within the framework of the specialisation in linguistics, linguistic structures are examined with regard to time and space. Language is examined in the context of politics, education, culture and communication. The specialisation in history conveys a holistic view on African history through the establishment of relationships between regional, topic-related and global aspects. As part of the specialisation students have to choose a master's module and write an independent academic master's thesis. It is recommended to spend part of the specialisation module at a recognised university abroad.
