Welcome to Africana Studies at the University of Delaware!
Since 1969, the department has been a leader in education for and about descendants of Africa in the United States and the diaspora. Our interdisciplinary curriculum focuses on four pillars:
At our core, we are a department that works to enrich our students, our scholarly fields, the University and the State of Delaware. Our purpose is to generate new knowledge and scholarly analysis on African Americans and the African diaspora. Through the study of race and racism, we contribute to the urgent need for public scholarship and service—especially for Black Delawareans.
To that end, Africana Studies continues to forge programmatic associations and community partnerships with those who pursue similar objectives of advancing diversity and anti-racism at the University and beyond. On campus, the department's ongoing association with other departments (English, art history, sociology, political science, anthropology, psychology, public policy and women's studies) and interdisciplinary programs (African studies, Latin American studies and international relations) broadens the reach of our students and faculty.
Our outstanding faculty are thoughtful teachers who are nationally and internationally renowned scholars. As leaders in their fields, Africana faculty bring meticulous research and dynamic conversations to the classroom. They offer a range of courses that explore the African diaspora through citizenship, economics, class, psychology, gender, science, health care, culture, social movements, visual arts, music, literature, fashion, design and pretty much any topic that concerns humanity. Africana Studies innovates and supports student research with our department faculty, through the University's Undergraduate Research Program and within the University's Honors Program. A bachelor's or master's degree in Africana Studies offers limitless opportunities. Many of our graduates earn advanced degrees from graduate or professional schools. Others make careers in education, legislative and public affairs, counseling and community organizations, journalism, advertising, marketing, human resources, social services, fashion and more.
Africana Studies is a vibrant, always evolving learning community. Come and discover with us!
Kimberly D. Blockett, Chair Professor of Africana Studies University of Delaware
