Established in 1980, the Master of Arts Program in African American Studies focuses on the origin of African and diasporic cultures in the United States, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The program provides a theoretical base of knowledge, exposure to methods of research, and a context for analyzing and interpreting the African diasporic experience, which can be invaluable either in further graduate study or in a specific job or career choice.
