DePaul's African and Black Diaspora program explores the topics of power, history, identity, gender and race in relation to contemporary understandings of Africa and the movement of its people throughout the world.  You will study African, Latin American, Afro-Caribbean and American regions in order to discover the relationships and dynamics between their peoples, religions and philosophies.

Our highly regarded and nationally recognized faculty members come from multiple academic departments, including sociology, anthropology, political science and philosophy, giving you a wide range of perspectives in your studies.  Professors take advantage of DePaul's location in Chicago and its large African-American population for extensive research and observation outside of the classroom.
