3.2.01
Africana Studies


3.2.01.1

Program Overview

The minor in Africana Studies allows students to explore the cultural, historical, and political experiences of peoples of African descent from a global perspective. In this interdisciplinary course of study, students make connections between African, African-American, and African diasporic forms and practices and gain a foundation in current theoretical perspectives on race.

The goals of the Warren Wilson College Africana Studies Program are the following:

  1. To introduce students to the great diversity of historical, cultural, and artistic contributions made by peoples of African descent across the globe.
  2. To teach students to critically examine and deconstruct the concept of race/ethnicity from both an individual and societal perspective.
