Black World Studies
“As I started to figure out my career path, I saw how Black World Studies would help me with job placement, better counseling of black people and increased knowledge.”
Black World Studies provides students with a multicultural and international education. Part of Dominican’s Interdisciplinary Studies, the program draws from several disciplines including social sciences, natural sciences, humanities, fine arts and education.
This major is only offered in conjunction with other majors.
Students learn to:
- Understand and mutually respect multiple ethnicities
- Interpret the historical, cultural, political and socioeconomic experiences of peoples of African descent
- Study the linkages and relationships between Africans on the continent and those in Diaspora
- Understand the experiences and contributions of peoples of “black” ancestry to the rest of the world
Students will increase their understanding of black world experiences, cultures, societies, life, history and philosophies.
