    Departmental Mission

    The goal of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill is to give specific attention to the histories, cultures, cultural linkages, and contemporary socio-political realities of the peoples of Africa and the African Diasporas. We encourage majors to consider studying abroad in one of the expanding number of programs in Africa or the Atlantic African Diaspora.

    The Department of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies is an interdisciplinary and transnational program leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree.  The major offers two areas of concentration: African Studies and African American and Diaspora Studies. Prospective majors should contact the department.

    Programs of Study

    The degree offered is Bachelor of Arts in African, African American, and Diaspora Studies, with a concentration either in African Studies or African American and Diaspora Studies. Minors in African Studies or African American and Diaspora Studies  are also offered.

    Graduate School and Career Opportunities

    The skills and perspectives of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies provide an excellent background for students considering careers in international development, education, business, government, or diplomacy. Students concentrating in African, African American, and Diaspora Studies go on to a wide variety of managerial, teaching, and research positions. Other careers for which the major is excellent preparation include law, the foreign service, various positions in government, communications, social work, community development, and public administration.
