Mission

There is an ever-increasing demand for college graduates who are equipped to work in global and multicultural environments. Ohio University’s Department of African American Studies offers a distinctive program that focuses on the African American experience regionally, nationally, and globally. It offers a solid program of study that draws from a range of academic fields including history, sociology, psychology, political science, economics, literature, art, music, and media.
