Offered in coordination with dozens of academic departments at F&M, Africana Studies provides significant research projects locally, regionally, and throughout Africa.
As an Africana Studies major or minor, you will have the opportunity to break new ground and literally create original fields of research in innovative areas.
Recent research projects have included studies on the evolution of hip-hop, pop culture, gender issues on the African continent, and reverse colonization.
The interdisciplinary study of Africa and its people will take you back to the cradle of civilization. The range of interrelated histories, cultures, and intellectual contributions of Africans and those of African origin is truly staggering.
The program affords numerous travel opportunities as well as internships for credit at relevant sites, including the Urban League of Lancaster, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the Smithsonian Institute.
