Career Paths

York's African Studies Program is designed to give graduates a broad theoretical framework and a set of highly developed analytic skills.

The career and employment opportunities for our graduates are potentially excellent, in view of society's growing awareness of the importance of international, gender and equity issues. Prospective employers welcome employees who are sensitive to international issues and comfortable with the emerging diversity of Canadian society.

Alumni from our Programs have found work in a wide range of fields, including government, education, law, social work, public service, business and media. A degree in African Studies will offer you the challenge of personal and political insight, and it will encourage you to grow intellectually beyond the confines of traditional academic learning.
