Africa Past and Present 

Africana Studies explores, researches, interprets and disseminates theoretical, historical, literary and artistic developments on the African continent and in the African Diaspora, past and present.

With an interdisciplinary approach, students use critical thinking skills to explore, apply and disseminate both established and fresh scholarship in pursuit of academic excellence and social responsibility.
