Students will explore African American, African, and African Diasporic intellectual, cultural, and political thought and traditions in both historical and contemporary contexts. African American culture has a story worth telling: one that includes multiple narrative threads that span the communities, cultures, and ethnicities of Africa and the African Diaspora. Through interdisciplinary study of a range of topics related to the local and global histories of people of African descent, students will critically engage the intersecting dimensions of race, privilege, and oppression in their own lives and in their communities.
For the African American and Africana studies minor, at least 20 hours in designated courses are required, all of which may be fulfilled simultaneously with any number of Perspectives requirements. The core course, IN 211 Africana Thought and Practice, is required.?
Students have the option to register for courses offered by the Africana studies minor at the Berkelee College of Music, including Music of the African and Africana Diaspora, Sociology of Black Music in American Culture, and Black Biographies.
Rising juniors and seniors also have the opportunity to register for a South Africa study abroad course.?Visit Voices from the Margins for more information.
