Master of Arts in AAADS

The M.A. program in AAADS provides a theoretical base of knowledge and a context for analyzing African American and diaspora experiences. This experience can be invaluable in further graduate studies or within a wide array of careers. We strive to:

  • offer a deep analysis of African American issues
  • expose you to both historical and current methodological approaches
  • examine issues in their complexity throughout the African diaspora
  • help you refine your critical and problem-solving skills in both the humanities and social sciences
  • extend a strong foundation for those going into a doctoral program
  • prepare our students for careers in administration, teaching, communication, and social service
