Department of Africana Studies

The Department of Africana Studies is a multidisciplinary department engaged in critical analyses of current and historical sociological, economic, political, psychological and cultural issues concerning the African Diaspora and Africa. The Course offerings and research interests of the Africana Studies faculty help ensure that criminal justice and public service education and policy recommendations developed at John Jay College are broadly conceived and integrate the socioeconomic and cultural context of crime, law, and law enforcement.
