Every semester the Africana Studies (AFS) Program offers new stimulating courses in a variety of disciplines. In the Spring of 2007, AFS courses were offered in Africana Studies, Arabic, Art History, Education, American History, History, Political Science, and Women & Gender Studies.
During Summer 2008, AFS will offer an exciting course entitled "Sites of Memory in the Caribbean: A Celebration of History and Culture." The course will focus on the social-historical culture of a number of countries throughout the Caribbean and includes a Royal Caribbean cruise through the Easter Caribbean (San Juan Puerto Rico).
