African and Black Diaspora Studies

 

African and Black
Diaspora Studies

African and Black Diaspora Studies (ABD) is an interdisciplinary department at DePaul that provides its students with an opportunity to study the diverse cultures and societies that make up the global African Diaspora.

Undergraduate and Minor Programs

African and Black Diaspora Studies encourages its students to explore the Black experience from a variety of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives including but not limited to historical, artistic, sociological, anthropological, and philosophical approaches. Students may concentrate their study regionally (e.g. Africa, Black America, Afro-Caribbean and Latin America, etc.) or thematically (e.g. literature and culture, politics, gender and sexuality, etc.). ABD prepares its students to be socially-conscious global citizens prepared with the tools of analysis, oral and written communication, and cultural understanding needed to succeed in today's world.
