Black World Studies examines the integrity, continuity, diversity, and vitality of African diaspora experiences. Its primary goal is to provide students with different
perspectives on the history and culture of Africa and its diasporas in Central, North, and South America as well as the Caribbean and elsewhere. The major is
interdisciplinary in character, combining approaches from political science, literature, sociology, anthropology, history, religion, art, psychology, and economics. Students
are encouraged to do field work and internships. Study abroad opportunities to Africa and the Caribbean are also available. Since a background in Black World Studies can
help prepare one for careers in education, social work, journalism, law, and community service, majors typically combine Black World Studies with a second major
or minor in departments such as politics and government, sociology, English, and education.
