Africana Studies

The Mission of the Africana Studies Program is to understand and appreciate the integral yet distinct experiences of people of African heritage throughout the world. The Program’s curriculum aims to emphasize diasporic connections to Africa, the Caribbean and North America in an effort to enrich our understanding and appreciation of our complex and diverse world. As such, the Program encourages students to seek appropriate ways to integrate content and analysis in this broad subject matter with their work in other disciplines and programs.
