The Africana Studies Major and Minor at Davidson

The Africana Studies major and minor are dedicated to the critical examination of the experience of people of whole or partial African descent whether they are in Africa, the United States, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe or other places around the world.

The Africana Studies Department requires 10 courses for the completion of the major and six courses for the completion of the minor. We highly recommend that students begin their study with AFR 101.
