The minor in Africana studies offers students an interdisciplinary perspective on the historic and contemporary experiences of African and African-descended peoples worldwide. Its broad liberal arts curriculum integrates the arts, social-cultural, and political-economic study of African peoples and examines the centrality of "Africa" in understanding the contemporary world. Unique to the Africana studies minor at Webster University is the opportunity to study abroad at the Accra, Ghana campus, where students may experience firsthand many of the social-cultural and political-economic issues introduced in the classroom.
