Graduate Programs

The graduate programs in African & African Diaspora Studies (AADS) at Florida International University (FIU) provide the opportunity for innovative and interdisciplinary study of the peoples of Sub-Saharan Africa and their experiences, as well as the communities of the African diaspora in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Our curriculum provides one of the few truly international, multidisciplinary learning models among Africana Studies programs, departments, and centers nationally.

We offer a two-year MA program, as well as combined MA /PhD degrees in AADS and International Relations, in AADS and History, and in AADS and Global & Sociocultural Studies (Anthropology, Geography and Sociology)
