Africana Studies offers a major, interdepartmental major and a minor that explores the history, culture, intellectual heritage and social development of people of African descent.
Focusing on the continent of Africa as well as such places in the diaspora as the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe and the United States, our program features a variety of approaches that draw upon the arts, humanities, and social and behavioral sciences.
Africana Studies majors have more than 60 courses from which to choose. There are also opportunities to pursue mini-terms in Senegal, South Africa and the American South.
Students who graduate with a degree in Africana Studies are prepared for graduate study in the humanities and social and behavioral sciences, as well as for professional careers in a wide array of fields, including human services, education, government, law, business, community development, journalism and international affairs.
