"The African Studies program is very important
to me because I am of African descent and through this
program I can study my heritage in an academic setting.
As an English major with intentions to pursue a doctorate
in African American literature, I have found valuable
opportunities to explore different areas of my emphasis.
Culture, politics, history, and other topics are pertinent
to the understanding of the literature of a people."
Keemelah Martin, English major
"The Africana Studies minor program
is an essential component to an inclusive comprehensive
education... It introduces students to concepts and cultures
that aren't covered in other areas. The Center for Africana
Studies will aid Georgia Southern University in its efforts
to become recognized as one of the most comprehensive,
student centered universities in the nation."
Francys Johnson, Political Science major
"A broad and holistic world view is an essential
aspect of receiving the best possible education and of
achieving maximum personal potential." Kristi West, International Studies major
