African American and African Studies (AAAS) is a cross-college, university-wide, Ph.D. and M.A. degree-granting, interdisciplinary program as well as an Undergraduate Specialization. Our program is devoted to advanced exploration and analysis of the social, cultural, economic, and political experiences of African descendants in the United States, in the Caribbean, and elsewhere in the African Diaspora; as well as of Africans in the Continent.  The mission of AAAS is the production and creation of knowledge and the cultivation of scholars committed to academic excellence and social responsibility in both the local and global community.


  1. Our program embraces genuinely diverse intellectual and ideological approaches to researching, teaching and civic engagement required for vibrant, complex and comprehensive study within the Black Studies discipline. In addition to our Black Studies Core Curriculum the program collaborates with a range of disciplinary majors, specializations in the colleges of Arts and Letters, Social Sciences and Natural and Medical Sciences.


  1. Though anchored by the experience in the United States, our deeply comparative, cross-national and cross-cultural curriculum is committed to researching a broad geographical spatial context that includes the Africana experience elsewhere in the Diaspora and in the diverse nations of Africa.


  1. Our program features a domestic and international internship as well as other extra curricular educational opportunities that offer our students a trans-disciplinary experience in black studies.
