Welcome to African and African-American Studies
Exploring life through the eyes of African culture
The minor in African and African American Studies at Loyola invites students to study the peoples, histories, and cultures of Africa and people of African descent in the United States, Caribbean, Latin America, and other places where there is an African diaspora presence. The program provides a stimulating combination of intellectual engagement and cultural experience through its course offerings and events.
Students are encouraged to participate in various events throughout the semester that address aspects of the African American or African diaspora experience.
