Africana Studies Program

The Africana Studies Program of Villanova University was initiated in 1994 and is open to all students of the University. It offers a rich, deep, dense, innovative, and integrative interdisciplinary intellectual fare.

Africana Studies engages Africa and peoples of African descent wherever and whenever they might be found. It brings together students and scholars using a diverse array of methods, from ethnographic to literary-critical, from philosophical to historical, in order to explore the worlds of Black people and the meaning of justice for Black people.
