About Department for African and African American Studies
The African and African American Studies Program was established in its present form in the late 1960s. The Program is designed for students with professional interest in a comprehensive understanding of African American or African culture needed for work in their target community, and to equip educators with a knowledge of and a sensitivity to the teaching of African and African American cultures.The Program provides focus as well as breadth through the interdisciplinary area studies approach. Because of the long tradition of African and African American studies at the University, pertinent courses are offered in many departments, particularly English, Foreign Language, History, Political Science, and Sociology.
About Department of Africana Women's Studies
Founded in 1982, the Africana Women's Studies is the only degree-granting women's studies program located in an historically black college in the United States, the only women's studies program in the United States which offers the doctoral degree in Africana women's Studies and the only Africana women's studies program in the world. AWS provides opportunities for the systematic analysis of the convergence of gender, class and racial bias. It also focuses on the comparative examination of the contributions, problems, strategies and concerns of Africana women. Analytical approaches that rigorously compare and contrast the lives of all women by class, age and color without regard to their geographic location are strongly encouragedAWS is cross-cultural, national, international and interdisciplinary in its focus. Similar to many nontraditional, interdisciplinary programs and departments, AWS has a small, stable core faculty with faculty associates from traditional departments.
