Thank you for your interest in our degree programs in African American Studies Department.
The African American Studies Department is designed to bring into disciplinary focus, through inter-departmental and multicultural course offerings in Liberal Arts and Sciences, the history and culture of Africans and their descendents, throughout the diaspora from antiquity to the present.
Readings and classrooms lectures bring research, critical analysis, synthesis, and interpretation to bear on the contributions of peoples of African descent to the genesis and the development of human civilization. African American Studies is fundamentally concerned with the stimulation of intellectual growth and the development of humanist principles.
