Africana Studies Minor
The minor in Africana Studies allows students to explore the cultural, historical, and political experiences of peoples of African descent from a global perspective. In this interdisciplinary course of study, students make connections between African, African-American, and African diasporic forms and practices and gain a foundation in current theoretical perspectives on race.
The goals of the Warren Wilson College Africana Studies Program are the following:
- To introduce students to the great diversity of historical, cultural, and artistic contributions made by peoples of African descent across the globe.
- To teach students to critically examine and deconstruct the concept of race/ethnicity from both an individual and societal perspective.
