Engaged Learning

Engage with history

We believe students learn best when engaging with their studies both inside and outside the lecture hall. Africana Studies majors will take their experiences in the lecture hall and apply their critical thinking skills to projects outside the classroom. This includes digital projects, where you will use cutting-edge research tools to uncover slave history, discover genealogies, and learn the history behind unlisted deaths.

Engage with your community

Our curriculum emphasizes the importance of students applying their knowledge to improve their own communities and society as a whole. We encourage students to become active members of the community through volunteer opportunities. You will participate in community clean-up events, Habitat for Humanity construction projects, and tutor younger students in the Middle Georgia area.
