African American Studies - BA

The undergraduate program in African American studies centers on the inspiring contributions that Africans—both continental and diaspora—have made on the road to human excellence. Our students are exposed to national and international leaders who share the history and 21st century reality of African culture, history, literature, languages and community. We teach critical, analytical, research and creative skills to prepare students for roles of effective agency. Students will learn to lead in the intellectual, research and social activist domains of professional and community life.
