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.
We have many exciting and informative events throughout the year. Please visit our events page for more information.
