Study and celebrate
Explore the rich and complex influence of the peoples of African origin, both in Africa and in the African diaspora.
The Africana studies program examines the interconnected historical, cultural, artistic and political forces of African-American, African and Caribbean peoples.
This interdisciplinary program provides a deeper understanding of the Africana experience and identity through a well-rounded curriculum steeped in business administration, education, economics, fine arts, history, Latina American/Latino Studies, political science, sociology, theology and urban studies.
Whether you pursue a minor or other programming, you can focus on areas that complement and augment your major field of study.
Our Africana studies program encourages students of all ethnicities to think critically about the interplay of race in the lives of individuals, institutions and societies.
The Africana Studies Program has an Advisory Council consisting of faculty, administrators, staff and students that ensures that the Africana Studies is continually evolving to meet the needs of the University community.
