  • Description:
  • African American and African Studies (AAAS) at MSU consists of three components: a Ph.D. degree program; an undergraduate specialization; a Master of Arts degree in AAAS. Though these three programs have their distinctive emphases and requirements (as can be seen elsewhere on our website), there is much commonality among them. Among these commonalities are the following:

    - Our program embraces genuinely diverse intellectual and ideological approaches to researching and teaching the global Black experience.

    - Though anchored in the African American experience in the United States, our deeply comparative, cross-national and cross-cultural program is committed to teaching and researching the Black experience in Africa and elsewhere in the African Diaspora.

    - We examine how the experiences of Black people and other communities of color in the U.S., including Latinos, Native Americans, Asians, and Pacific Islanders intersect and the implications of these historical and contemporary interactions for empowerment struggles of Black people in the 21st century.

    - Formal linking of graduate and undergraduate courses requiring mentor-mentee relations between undergraduate students and doctoral students in AAAS.

    - Through our curriculum and varied internships, located in the U.S. and elsewhere in the African world, we are developing scholars and socially responsible citizens.
