    What will I study?

    Africana Studies courses are designed to provide understanding and appreciation of the African Diaspora both as it has unfolded over time and as it is currently manifested. The program uses the Afrocentric world view as the philosophical basis for the presentation of its courses. The Africana Studies Program cross-lists with some courses offered through other EWU colleges such as History, Women & Gender Studies, Social Work and Sociology.
