As an academic major, interdepartmental major or minor, Africana Studies prepares students, not only as adept critical thinkers, presenters, and researchers, but also as valuable global citizens. Africana Studies expands your worldview and deepens understanding of people of African ancestry. Students explore key aspects of Black life in Africa, the Caribbean, the United States, Europe, and the Americas. This pluralistic approach to the curriculum gives students a fuller appreciation of the African Diaspora. The African Diaspora refers to the communities throughout the world that are descended from the historic movement of peoples from Africa to around the globe.
The Africana Studies Program provides an academic and socially relevant curriculum and experience based education focusing on arts, humanities, and social sciences of people of African heritage. Involvement in courses, terms abroad, mini terms and student campus organizations prepare our graduate for advanced work in professional and graduate schools, or begin careers in law, performing arts, education, public policy, or health care. The degree offers students opportunities for a life of service and meaning—to not only work in society but to help transform it.
