The Center for African, Black and Caribbean Studies is building on over four decades of success in offering interdisciplinary teaching, scholarship, and cultural programming. The Center’s primary emphasis will continue to be on providing an interdisciplinary minor that focuses on exploring the history, culture, and contemporary dimensions of peoples of African descent.
The Center’s global vision, and the minor in African, Black and Caribbean Studies, offers a broad and interdisciplinary range of courses that prepare students to examine and develop concepts and theories that build a greater understanding of the historical, cultural, socioeconomic, and political experiences of people of African descent. The Center draws on the faculty of the arts, humanities, social sciences, and the professional schools, in developing a broad and interdisciplinary range of courses and scholarly perspectives for its minor. The minor emphasizes the study of history, literature and the arts, the social sciences, culture and society, and contemporary issues.
The minor in African, Black and Caribbean Studies enhances employment opportunities in an increasingly culturally diverse workplace, and graduate school opportunities in professions such as business, education, government, law, journalism, marketing, teaching, social work, and the arts. The Center’s academic and cultural programs are designed to enrich Adelphi and its neighboring communities. Courses and events are available to all students of the University regardless of their major, concentration, race, or ethnicity.
