Pan-African Studies Program

The Pan-African Studies program offers events, courses, and a minor, all of which focus on people of African descent throughout the world.

As our society becomes more multicultural and globalized, a knowledge of Pan-African Studies is a significant element of a well-rounded education.

This multidisciplinary minor helps students enrich their cross-cultural studies by heightening their awareness of and sensitivity to cultural diversity and expanding their knowledge of contributions by persons of African heritage.

The minor in Pan-African Studies is a valuable asset in the increasingly diverse society and is attractive to employers and graduate schools alike.
