Certificate in Africana Studies

IRADAC is pleased to sponsor and support the Certificate Program in Africana Studies at the Graduate Center. The study of the African Diaspora as it is manifested in social and cultural structures outside of the African continent has emerged over the last decade and a half as one of the academic world's most active interdisciplinary arenas. Studying the field from New York City offers students a unique context due to the city's rich history and expansive ethnic tapestry.

The primary goal of the program is to produce scholars who are fully cognizant of the diverse field of Black Studies. This certificate will provide them with the analytic and research tools to navigate and articulate the black experience, furthering the ongoing dialogue on race and identity.

Only doctoral candidates enrolled at the Graduate Center can complete a Certificate in Africana Studies.
