Africana Studies

The Africana Studies major is dedicated to the critical examination of the experience of people of whole or partial African descent whether they are in Africa, the United States, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe or other places around the world. Our Africana Studies department is indebted to the movement of the "Black Studies" 1960s and 1970s and continues its legacy in many ways while also striking out in new directions that reflect the realities of the 21st century and the evolution of the field over the last 40 years along with a greater awareness of globalization.

Our curriculum reflects the great ethnic, racial, and religious diversity within the category of "blackness," and explores the artistic, historical, literary, and theoretical expressions of the various African and African Diaspora cultures.
