Welcoming all our new & returning students to Campus!

Whether new or returning to Carleton, the Institute of African Studies extends to you a very warm Akwaaba! We look forward to seeing you on the 4th  floor of Paterson Hall, where you are always welcome.

The Institute of African Studies is an interdisciplinary institute at Carleton University, bringing together a wide range of expertise on African history, politics, literatures, cinemas, media, societies, cultures, legal systems and economics. It is committed to teaching, research, debate and community outreach on all matters related to Africa.
