About Us


The Africana Studies Program, established in 1994 at Villanova University, is open to all students in the University. This is not a degree program, but rather an opportunity for a Minor in the area of Africana Studies.


The Africana Studies Minor is fulfilled with one introductory course and five electives. Courses are offered by a wide range of disciplines and will vary from semester to semester. Credits desired from electives taken by students during Study Aborad will be applied at the discretion of the Director.
