African Studies

African Studies at NYUAD seeks to cultivate a dynamic and sustainable space for academic discussion, activity, and community around the broad area of inquiry of Africa and its diaspora. With the support of the History Program, we organize an annual symposium series featuring guest speakers from within and beyond the University. Additional activities (film screenings, music performances, and workshops) also aim to foster cooperation between faculty and students, between Student Interest Groups, and other interested parties on campus.

Three students from NYU Abu Dhabi — one senior and two alumnae — have launched an education program in Africa designed to get resource-strapped teachers and students excited about mathematics.
