Africana Studies


The Africana Studies Program is an interdisciplinary field that brings together the humanities and social sciences to study the world from African American and African perspectives. The aim of the program is to introduce students to analytical and critical skills through multiple methodological approaches drawn from anthropology, art history, history, literature, music, political economy, and theater.
