Degrees and programs
African American & African Diaspora Studies
The AAADS Ph.D. is an interdisciplinary doctoral program focusing on the experiences of people of African descent in the United States, in the African diaspora, and in the world. These shared experiences—among them, slavery, emancipation, imperialism, decolonization, and racism—warrant close attention and mark this field as a discrete unit of study that bears directly and powerfully on history, literature, and politics.
