The Africana Studies faculty provide students with opportunities to study the historical and contemporary realities of the African world experience. Through comprehensive course offerings, research, community service, study abroad opportunities, symposia, colloquia, and conferences, the Department of Africana Studies strives to produce critical thinkers, scholars and leaders with broad intellectual perspectives, and skills required to function effectively and comfortably in a multicultural environment. Here are the difference makers at CSUDH.
