"Diaspora" comes from the Greek word meaning "to scatter." This unique field allows students to study the dispersal of African people and the consequences thereof.
Interdisciplinary minors, African and African diaspora studies are integrative programs intended to deepen your understanding of the African continent. A broad range of courses make it possible to adapt the minor to a variety of major programs in humanities, social sciences and fine arts. The minor program encompasses both Africa itself as well as the dispersal of Africans to Europe and the Americas.
