Access to Higher Education: Africana Studies

Africana Studies is an interdisciplinary and critical examination of Africa, her diaspora and the wider world. It has been designed as an extension to our African and Caribbean Studies Module which is available on Social Science and Social Science and Humanities pathways. The Africana Studies diploma and the African and Caribbean studies module are the only level 3 subject specific academic modules/qualifications of their type in Europe, and have been developed in response to the limited accredited African/black related courses in the UK.
