The undergraduate program in Africana Studies (AFST) engages students in a critical examination of the intellectual, political, economic, and cultural challenges and achievements of Africans and Africandescended peoples. The study of these diverse and dynamic traditions does much more than embracing the centrality of race. It also encompasses imperial, national, ethnic, linguistic, and religious currents and intersections in such farflung settings as Africa, North America, the Caribbean Basin, Latin America, the Middle East, South Asia, and Europe.The Program draws on wideranging fields of inquiry including history, sociology, economics, anthropology, political science, religion, literature, music, drama, dance, film, and the visual arts. Through coursework that integrates and at often transcends disciplinary knowledge, students learn to appreciate the specificity of Africa and its offshoots, the ways in which local and global forces interacted to shape a shared identity of Blackness as well as communityspecific identities, and the trajectories of syncretism and other forms of intercultural exchange.

The American Studies Program engages students in the interdisciplinary study of the culture and society of the United States and the Americas, past and present. We encourage students to cross traditional intellectual boundaries and develop perspectives on American life that are more expansive and critical than those normally found within the limits of a single discipline. Working with a wide array of methods, themes, and materials, students discover firsthand our society's rich and often conflicted history of cultural, racial, and sexual diversity.

Anthropologists today work in a variety of settings, performing in a variety of jobs, most of which involve analyzing human behavior in some way or another. The study of social life and the cultural and physical evidence of human experience which anthropology provides can complement many other disciplines from law to economics, from business to teaching, from peacekeeping to police work.Anthropologists are interested in both theoretical and applied pursuits. The discipline incorporates field work, data collection and analysis, but it is also extremely well suited to new theoretical insights and perspectives. Anthropology has a long standing tradition of exchanging ideas and influences with History, Sociology and Biology.
