Africana Studies

Minor in Africana Studies

Africana Studies opens the minds of students to new perspectives. Students are challenged to engage in the rich historical and social aspects of people from African ancestry.

Students and faculty in the Africana Studies Program focus on teaching and research on both Continental Africans and the African Diaspora, especially with regard to the United States and other nations of the Americas. The program promotes academic excellence, social awareness and responsibility, challenging students to explore topics that are not yet fully represented the broader curriculum.

The Africana studies minor offers students an opportunity to take electives in the sciences, humanities, social sciences, and the arts by offering courses in anthropology, art, English, architecture, foreign languages, geography, history, hunger studies, music, philosophy, rural sociology, sociology, and social work. A minor in Africana Studies enhances all of the degree programs listed above and is valuable to professions working in areas in which awareness of and respect for human diversity is an asset.
