What is Africana Studies, and why study it?

The Africana Studies Minor focuses on preparing undergraduate students to succeed in an increasingly complex and diverse world.  Through challenging study in a variety of disciplines, students focus on the experiences of African people throughout the world. 

The interdisciplinary approach exposes students to a broad range of perspectives and approaches to learning, making an Africana Studies Minor a perfect complement to any major.
