Africana Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that provides students with the opportunity to study, from multiple perspectives, the culture and experiences of peoples from Africa and its diasporas. Drawing from the humanities and social sciences, this minor engages a variety of topics such as language and culture, social struggle and inequality, and social advancement and artistic creativity. It provides students with the opportunity to explore the diverse backgrounds of African-origin people all over the world. Africana Studies is designed for students of all backgrounds and majors who are interested in learning more about the cultures and heritages of this varied group, including people from differing countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and North, Central, and South America.

Students can choose to take the basic minor, or focus in either The African Diaspora or African Americans in the United States.
