The Department of Africana Studies offers an interdisciplinary major and minor, a minor in hip-hop cultures, and a variety of internships and study abroad opportunities. The department embraces new technologies and is a leader in online offerings and digital humanities.
Our faculty encompasses diverse academic backgrounds producing a fertile and exciting interdisciplinary dynamic evident in both our teaching and research. We encourage students from all backgrounds to join us in investigating the historical and contemporary experiences of Africana peoples and how they are shaped by gender, class, race, and other important ideas.
Our courses prepare students to collaborate in an increasingly diversified marketplace and our graduates develop skills that position them to excel in twenty-first-century careers.
Aja has an advantage as an Africana Studies and retailing double major, with the ability to become a cultural influencer and bridge the gap between companies and consumers.
