Africology – Courses Offered

Africology is the discipline that studies the cultures, societies and political economies of people of African descent in the United States and throughout the world. Africology uses both quantitative and qualitative methods of inquiry to describe, explain, evaluate, and predict the lived experiences of people of African descent. The major in Africology thus educates students in the best traditions of the liberal arts and sciences, providing them with a sound knowledge of the past, present, and future roles of people of African descent in structuring life in diverse societies. The department’s courses are designed to satisfy the needs of students who desire to specialize in Africology or whose career objectives make it desirable to have knowledge of people of African descent in the United States and throughout the world.

The department’s courses are designed to satisfy the needs of:

  1. those who desire to specialize in Africology,
  2. those whose career objectives make it desirable to have knowledge of people of African descent,
  3. and those who seek to broaden the scope of their education in the liberal arts and sciences.

Students considering a major or minor in Africology are encouraged to seek assistance in the Department of Africology, located in Mitchell Hall 225.
