Africana Studies

You can take courses that focus on the histories, cultures, politics and societies of Africa and its diaspora, from the political economy of the Caribbean to modern South Africa. We also offer an exciting six-credit study-abroad summer seminar, which provides an in-depth experience in such countries as Barbados, Brazil, Cuba, Ghana, Haiti, Jamaica, Panama, and Trinidad and Tobago.
