The Africana Studies Program is committed to an interdisciplinary inquiry into the actions, events and phenomena that structure the historical and contemporary life experiences of people of African descent living on the African continent and in Black Atlantic societies including the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America.

Students pursuing a minor in Africana Studies will engage in conversations and research across a variety of disciplines, including English, history, sociology, anthropology, media & communication, psychology, political science, music, theatre and dance.
