African and African-American Studies

African and African American Studies (AAAS) at Oswego is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the production of knowledge within a variety of disciplines, the history and culture, and the arts in Africa and in its diaspora. The AAAS curriculum encourages innovative work across disciplines through requirements, such as the senior project, that allow students to create new intellectual opportunities and to enhance learning in their respective majors. Upon completing the minor, students who enter professions in management, human resources, fine arts, public justice, and education, for instance, will have the knowledge and skills to understand and to contribute actively to growing and ever-changing global contexts and communities.

For more information, check out the minor requirements or contact the Program Director, Dr. Patricia E. Clark, P303C Campus Center, 315.312.2243,
