The African American and African Studies program at The Ohio State University encourages students to critically examine the role of race in society through a variety of disciplines within the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Our curriculum promotes an intersectional perspective, emphasizing how race relates to class, gender and sexuality, nationality, ethnicity and other social structures on a global scale.
Graduates of the African American and African studies program are prepared for careers in higher education, law, public health, urban planning, social work and other fields that value an intersectional perspective and a broad background in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
