African American Studies - MA

The master’s degree in African American studies examines the theoretical and practical issues confronting African people. It provides an intellectual arena for students to analyze and interpret the experiences, traditions and dynamics of people of African descent. Our diverse faculty and community possess a deep commitment and encourages students to pursue a self-directed study of African people. The program provides specialized study and can serve as a terminal degree or a foundation for those who intend to apply to the PhD program.
