A hearty welcome to the Kwabena Nketia Centre for Africana Studies at AUCC! The KNCAS is an interdisciplinary institution dedicated to the study and advancement of knowledge about the peoples and cultures of Africa and the African Diaspora, through scholarly research, teaching and publications that are aimed at the regeneration of African peoples and societies.

The motto of AUCC is "Discover yourself from here," and, appropriately, the foundational tools for this self-discovery are found in the Africana Studies courses that are offered by the Kwabena Nketia Centre for Africana Studies.

These courses are designed to effectively enable students to discover who they are so that they can confidently go out to pursue their future careers.

Students are encouraged to take Africana Studies courses that will create and deepen an awareness of themselves as Africans and contribute to the future of Africa.

Our students learn to examine the world around them, communicate what they know, and persuade others to their point of view. By their fourth year, our students are prepared for a variety of careers not limited to public relations, broadcast media, government, marketing, sales, social media, law, health, academia.
