What I want to accomplish in this course

The aim of this course is to get you to think critically about some of the major developmental issues facing Sub-Saharan Africa today.

Some caveats:

  • This is not a typical course

  • I am only a graduate student, not the Oracle at Delphi

    But…

  • It will be interesting!

  • You will learn how to think and you will learn about Africa

  • More specifically…
