Africana Studies


Program Description

The 9-credit graduate certificate in Africana Studies offers students enrolled in graduate programs the opportunity to complete their studies with an additional specialization in Africana Studies. It provides students in any discipline a concentration on the interrelated experiences of the peoples of Africa and the African diaspora, and the multiple methodologies of inquiry necessary to interrogate those experiences fully through comparative and global contexts. The Certificate in Africana Studies will help prepare students to teach and conduct research in Africana Studies, to enrich their current graduate work, and to develop an additional area of intellectual and academic expertise.
