Caribbean Studies

Discover the Caribbean without ever leaving New York.

More than two million people from the Caribbean live in the New York metropolitan area, and that makes Brooklyn College an ideal place for you to study their culture, history and contributions to the world. Our interdisciplinary program in Caribbean studies draws on the departments of Africana Studies, History, Political Science, Puerto Rican and Latino Studies, and Sociology to offer a dual major to undergraduates. You will attend lectures from world dignitaries, participate in conferences, secure internships that cater to the local Caribbean community, and have ample opportunities for research and travel to this vibrant area of the globe.
