THREE-DAY ONE CREDIT PROGRAMS
AFRICAN CULTURES AND RELIGION: FOUNDATIONAL, INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED
The first Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of each month OR other days of the month at the convenience of the participants provided there is a minimum registration of three students.
These graduate programs are designed to introduce the student to fundamental structures of contemporary African Cultures and Religion. They are based on the premise that the primary themes of African cultures can be taught systematically so that students can begin to attain an adult status in an African context. Students are awarded one credit for each phase successfully completed.
The program is in three phases: Foundational, Intermediate and Advanced (click the links below for a fuller description of each phase).
Each phase is done in three days. This consists of morning lectures, afternoon field research excursions and late afternoon debriefing session on the fieldwork undertaken during the day. The Morning lectures are conducted by highly skilled Africanist lecturers. In the afternoon, the students are accompanied by MIASMU trained graduate field assistants to their venues of field research. The field assistants, work with the students on a one-to-one basis.
After supper, the students write a two-page paper on what had been observed and understood on the topic of the day, and read assigned materials.
At the end of the three day period, students consolidate their papers in the form of a six-page essay with an introduction, conclusion and bibliography. The students are graded on the essay and class participation.
