Africana Studies at Bowdoin is an interdisciplinary field in which students learn about how the modern world came into existence throughout the African continent, and the worldwide African Diaspora, as well as the significant roles Africa and the African Diaspora (which includes the United States) played in creating the modern and contemporary worlds over the last six centuries.

The aim of the program is to develop students’ research, communication, and collaboration skills and habits through academic courses that combine subject areas drawn from anthropology, art history, history, literature, music, political economy, and theater, among other fields of research.
