It is the mission of Africana Studies to incorporate the ongoing mission of the University of Northern Colorado as a “comprehensive baccalaureate and specialized graduate research university….” Africana Studies is a liberal arts program in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences that utilizes an interdisciplinary approach so that students will use critical thinking skills to explore, apply and disseminate both established and fresh scholarship in pursuit of academic excellence and social responsibility. Africana Studies prepares students to pursue graduate school in areas of public policy, curriculum transformation, international relations, politics, psychology, journalism and mass communications, law, business, social work, cultural expression, education, and a host of other fields, as well as other significant opportunities.
