This fall Ashesi will offer its first series of courses in Africana studies. The Africana studies program at Ashesi University is designed to help students understand Africa's past and present, and begin to formulate some ideas of how this diverse society might be shaped for future generations. Furthermore, the Africana studies program serves as a platform for collaboration between local and international scholars of Africana. The program features a multi-disciplinary curriculum with courses in African music and dance, archaeology, architecture, history, philosophy, political science, and sociology. Africana studies courses may also be of particular interest to study abroad students, who will be enrolling at Ashesi for the first time in August 2004.
