Africana Studies

The program provides a cross-cultural and comparative framework for studying the traditions and experiences of Africans in the New and Old Worlds. Students are encouraged to develop their analytical, research, and literary skills through a critical study of the complex, interwoven patterns of Western and African civilizations. Topics include cultural and artistic creativity, construction of self, marginality, responses to exclusion, and the conjunction of issues related to gender, class, race, and ethnicity.

You can major or minor in this subject.
