I learned about my history as an African American and I learned about different cultures. This program was worthwhile because I made lifelong friends in the program and in each country. - Xavier University of Louisiana View Entire Review

About

Experience the vitality and global breadth of contemporary African diaspora communities.

Embark on an innovative, comparative study abroad program that takes you from the US, to Senegal, to Italy, and to China, where you will experience the vibrancy and complexity of present-day African migrant communities living worldwide. 

Rather than studying migration from a historical perspective, this program looks at present-day factors prompting migration from Africa and the vibrancy and entrepreneurial nature of many African diaspora communities, particularly those living in the US, Italy, and China.  

In addition to engaging with the topics of entrepreneurship and migration, you will study religion and West African Islam, Islamic banking, remittances, contemporary forms of racism, issues of human rights, and many other topics. You will become deeply knowledgeable about Senegalese culture, including through homestays and Wolof language instruction. In each location, you’ll learn from remarkable academics, businesspeople, traders, entrepreneurs, community members, and others.
