African American Studies
The African American Studies Minor is an important component of FSU’s goal to provide students with a liberal education which will equip them to navigate their way in an increasingly multicultural and globally integrated world. The program seeks to fill the void created by the all too frequent omission or inadequate treatment of the African and African American perspective in traditional disciplines. This program provides a special opportunity for study and research focusing on the rich and complex African/American heritage. It addresses the collective experience of Africans of the Diaspora who endured the vicissitudes of slavery and colonialism but rose to impressive heights in the arts and sciences and continue the vigorous struggle for cultural preservation and economic survival. As an interdisciplinary program, African American Studies as FSU draws from content and data accumulated in the Humanities, including the Creative/Performing Arts, and the Sciences. Institutions which directly affect the African American community are also examined.
The Center for International Education promotes, coordinates and supports FSU’s study abroad programs and sponsors international co-curricular programs on campus. The Center’s Director is advised by the International Education Council consisting of students, faculty and administrators.
The Center for International education houses information on the many study abroad opportunities available to FSU students; CIE’s library includes program materials, guides to study abroad programs and financial aid information.
