Africana Studies


Students may fulfill the requirements of the minor through special opportunities in consultation with the Africana Studies Director. These include:

  1. A semester or year in the Africa Abroad Program, coordinated with other study opportunities in Africa, or special summer abroad course through Stetson.
  2. Howard Thurman House Community Internship or other approved internship.
  3. A course of study in an African language approved by the committee. Arrangements for intensive summer study on a United States campus or a semester in Africa may be discussed with the Director.

For more information on this minor take a look at the Stetson Catalog.

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).
