Program Spotlight - African American and African Studies Major
The African American and African Studies ( AAAS) major teaches students about the social, cultural, political, economic, historical and intellectual experiences of Africans and their descendants throughout the world. The major critically examines the role of race in society through a variety of disciplines. The curriculum promotes an intersectional perspective, emphasizing how race relates to class, gender and sexuality, nationality, ethnicity and other social structures on a global scale. Students will be prepared for multiple career paths including higher education, law, public health, urban planning, social work and the corporate sector.
