About the Program:

The objectives of the Africana Studies Program are to provide students with opportunities to learn about the African heritage in the Americas.  Its curriculum is designed 1) to explore past and present cultural, social, political, and economic links between Africa and African descent populations in the Americas, and 2) to provide a comparative interdisciplinary theoretical and methodological examination of issues shaping the lives of persons of African descent in the United States and other nations of the Americas. The program seeks to accomplish these goals by 1) providing a minor in Africana Studies which provides different perspectives from which to examine issues to which students are exposed, and 2) identifying courses offered in other departments and programs which focus on Africa or populations of African descent in the Americas.  Africana Studies courses are intended to supplement disciplinary offerings as well as provide students with perspectives from within and across disciplines which challenge and question their established theories, methods, and conclusions.
