African, African-American and Caribbean thinkers have played a major role in defining the critical issues of our time, just as the cultures of Africans and their descendants have transformed the cultures of the Americas and the world.  A concentration in African and Afro-American studies allows you to explore intellectual, cultural, economic, political, social and historical issues related to Africans and people of African descent.  Courses are drawn from the humanities and social sciences.  Students will develop the analytical tools to read different kinds of texts, to write persuasively and to participate knowledgeable in debates about developments across the African continent, in the Americas and globally.
