Africana Studies

See Dr. Stacy Boyd (English; or Dr. Stephanie Wright (History;, to declare the Africana Studies Minor or  for a list of approved courses.

The Africana Studies minor is a multidisciplinary program that combines the study, research, interpretation, and the dissemination of knowledge concerning the African presence in Africa, the Americas, and other parts of the world from the birth of human civilization to the present. This program of study introduces students to theoretical perspectives and empirical studies of Africa and the African Diaspora. Undergraduate work in Africana Studies prepares students for employment opportunities in a variety of professional careers or for graduate study in the humanities and social sciences. Students are also equipped for careers in education, research institutions, corporations, multicultural institutions, community outreach, human resources management, social services, and public policy. Students in business and the professions (law, medicine, etc.) particularly enhance their ability to deal with a culturally diverse clientele.
