Africana Studies

The Africana Studies Minor at Albright College provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to the study of the histories, cultural practices, beliefs/ideas, and experiences of peoples of Africa and of the African Diaspora. Students will be familiarized with the various descriptive, critical, representational, and analytical approaches to the study of Africa, its peoples/diasporas, across time and space. The minor offers a curriculum that covers various disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and approaches within and across the fields of anthropology, arts, education, film studies, history, literature, philosophy, political science, psychology, religious studies, sociology, economics and business.
