This allows for greater clarity in properly assessing the impact Africana peoples have had upon countless aspects of the collective human experience.

Overview

The African and African American Studies major teaches students how to:

  • identify, study, and clarify African contributions to human history;
  • analyze and describe/express the various conditions that have impacted upon and influenced both the individual and collective development of African peoples; and
  • identify solutions as well as actions, which free all peoples from any socialized notions of inherent inferiority predicated on the basis of their African ancestry.
