You can pursue a major or minor in Africana and Latin American Studies with a concentration in one of the following four areas:
- African Studies
- Caribbean Studies
- African American Studies
- Latin American Studies
The geographical areas we study and the diverse peoples who inhabit them provide rich opportunities for interdisciplinary and comparative studies. That is why, in the course of your studies, you will be challenged to draw on information and research methods from disciplines as diverse as political science and music in order to develop a fuller picture of these communities.
We aim to promote an understanding both of the constituent regions individually and their mutual interdependence. Our studies include the examination of the indigenous civilizations of these regions and studies of the impact of migration, imperialism and colonialism, racism, nationalism, and globalization in shaping the lives, ideas, and cultural identities of their inhabitants.
