Welcome to the website for African American & Diaspora Studies at the University of Wyoming. AADS is one of seven interdisciplinary programs at the university in the College of Arts and Sciences that provides individuals the opportunity to study African people in America and throughout the world with a focus on history, culture, media, and life from ancient times to the present day.
We offer a 21-credit minor to pair with your major. We also offer a self-designed major. In addition, many of our courses satisfy the various general education requirements needed to earn any degree.
We provide rigorous courses and award-winning faculty teaching subjects from art and music to literature, history, law, religion and media. In addition, we have an Academic Resource room, 117 Ross Hall, for students and faculty to use computers, books, DVDs, and other resources.
We provide a program of culturally-appropriate knowledge to help individuals enhance their understanding of the human experience and prepare to be fully engaged citizens in a global society. This website provides information about our program, mission, faculty, students, and the university. I invite you to explore our website and contact us for any further information.
