The Department of Africana Studies announces its Master of Arts Program in Africana Studies, located in the College of Arts and Sciences at Stony Brook University, New York. The M.A. in Africana Studies is interdisciplinary in scope and addresses itself to the experiences of people of African descent throughout the world. It is designed to explore African civilizations and their influences on other parts of the African Diaspora. Issues within the global communities of Africa, the United States, the Caribbean/Latin America and elsewhere will be examined from both historical and contemporary perspectives.
The formation and evolution of the Africana Studies Department are grounded in fundamental assessments that evolved from its founding in 1968 and intersect with the mission of Stony Brook University to provide comprehensive undergraduate and graduate education of the highest quality. The Department of Africana Studies provides a rigorous disciplined intellectual environment to study the histories, literatures, political systems, cultures, arts, and social theories of Africa and the African Diaspora.
