Learning Outcomes

The Africana Studies program at Moravian College has adopted the following learning outcomes to enhance and support the intellectual and personal development of students pursuing an Africana Studies Minor at Moravian College:

  • CRITICAL THINKING: Challenge students in developing broader, interdisciplinary, critical intellectual and better informed local and global perspectives. Also, foster a broader historical and contemporary understanding of the lives and conditions of people of African descent across the globe.
  • SERVICE LEARNING & SOCIAL JUSTICE: Engage students in critically reflecting upon issues of social justice in Africa and/or African diasporic communities. As well as promoting values of service, pluralism, tolerance, empathy and compassion within local communities and the world at large.
  • INTER-SECTIONALITY: Prepare students to evaluate critical ways in which notions of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, socio-economic class, sexual preference, geographic location, religion, and political affiliation intersect in shaping the historical and lived experience of and within communities across Africa and the African diaspora.
