The Department of African-American and Africana Studies at the University of Maryland offers a truly interdisciplinary program of excellence focused on the Black experience in the U.S., Africa, and the African Diaspora. Our national and internationally renowned faculty conduct research on women and labor, social inequalities and health, educational inequalities and policy, incarceration and victimization, and family dynamics and health in sub-Saharan Africa. Intellectually anchored in social sciences and humanities, we are uniquely situated to examine a range of historical and contemporary issues relevant to people of African descent and contribute to the development of meaningful social policy.
