African American Studies

African American Studies is a distinct academic discipline that engages Africa-centered research and teaching through an interdisciplinary approach to scholarly inquiry.

The African American Studies graduate certificate introduces students to advanced discussions, analyses, theoretical perspectives, and research methodologies in the discipline of Africana Studies.

The African American Studies Program is a nine-hour disciplinary concentration open to students in all UH graduate and professional degree programs. It is also open to post baccalaureate professionals (including teachers, social service providers, policymakers, and others) interested in enhancing their knowledge and understanding of Africana phenomena.
