African & African American Studies (AAAS) promotes an understanding of how history informs the present and inspires an engagement with the past in order to collectively dream a more just and equitable future. 


Our faculty, staff, and students value the interrelated nature of the personal and the political and aim to create a community that allows for intellectual and personal flourishing.


The program’s interdisciplinarity equips students with the tools to produce revolutionary scholarship, question all assumptions and norms, and confront the power imbalances of our social reality.
