The Black Studies Program (BLST) is concerned with Africa and the African diaspora
communities, with a special focus on the U.S. as it is related to the Black world. The learning
outcomes based on the program’s curriculum for majors are knowledge of the main
theories, events, and/or issues associated with 

  • the history, sociocultural dynamics, and problems and possibilities in the Black world
  • theories of oppression based on race, color, socioeconomic class, gender, and
    sexuality along with their interrelationships, as well as practical ways to struggle
    against these types of oppression
  • the history and future of science and technology originating inside and outside of the
    Black world
  • the political economies of Black world societies in the global context
  • personal finance, entrepreneurship, strategies for success, and strategies for
    defining success
  • the history of black achievement
  • the history and creative output of black peoples in the literary, visual, musical, and
    performing arts

With these outcomes, the program’s mission is twofold:

  • to provide an intellectual setting in which students from the Black world can grow and
    develop into productive lifelong learners, citizens, and activists seeking to improve
    their communities, their nations, and the world
  • to provide an intellectual setting in which students from all communities can gain a
    knowledge of the Black world, assisting them in confronting diversity in their
    development into productive, lifelong learners, citizens, and activists seeking to
    improve their communities, their nations, and the world
