Africana Studies is the study and understanding of the vast experiences,
history, culture, political perspectives and theoretical underpinnings
reflecting people and nations of African descent around the world.
Presently, numerous universities across the nation offer Africana
Studies programs that are designed to compliment the traditional
student’s academic major.
Africana Studies at Barry University seeks to enrich and enlighten
students through an interdisciplinary course offering, as well
as cultural activities and programs on the Miami Shores campus.
The program understands the importance of providing students with
clear and accurate knowledge about communities and people that
comprise the African Diaspora, within the framework of a liberal
arts education at an academically progressive and multicultural
institution of higher learning.
