Students walking through the academic quad

The minor in Africana studies aims to provide students with a broad yet selective exposure to the study of people of African descent on the continent of Africa and in the African diaspora. Students work with advisers to construct an individualized program of study that teaches them to interpret specific historical and cultural evidence, to examine the many identities and worldviews of African people, and how different cultures mix in Africa and the African diaspora.
