Africana Studies

Africana Studies is a multidisciplinary program of study that through the humanities, social sciences, music, and the arts, seeks to explore key aspects of the past and present lives of the peoples of Africa on this continent and in the Diaspora.

Drawing on university offerings in the School of Business Administration, School of Music, and in the College of Arts & Sciences, as well as special programs, such as the Thurman lecture Program and colloquia at the College of Law, students in the minor explore a wide range of African and African American texts and gain an appreciation for the development and awakening of peoples throughout the Diaspora.

Students in the minor are also encouraged to select a senior project in their majors that will allow them to further enrich their understanding of Africana Studies.
