Since its start in 1970, the Department of African American Studies has grown to be one of the most successful programs in the country. The department offers a wide variety of courses leading to both undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificates, as well as bridges into the English and history departments doctoral programs. We believe that the deepest understanding of the complex reality of race in America requires a truly interdisciplinary approach that draws on history and literature, the social sciences, and the arts. We are committed to bringing academic research to the broadest possible audience, and to do so, we need your support.
