The African Studies Program (AFST) is aimed at students primarily concerned with mastering a specific discipline who would like to apply their knowledge to Africa. AFST seeks to draw together the many members of the York community with an interest in Africa and to provide them with a scholarly, cultural and progressive political forum.

During the academic year, AFST sponsors a variety of public events. Students are encouraged to participate in these events, and to interact with Africanists who teach in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, the Faculty of Environmental Studies and in the Faculty of Fine Arts.
