Study in Black

The New Department of Black Study at UCR

A new trans/anti-disciplinary department focusing on diasporic Black experiences and cultures with courses that range from history and the social sciences, to speculative arts and abolition.


Mentorship That Matters

Our faculty are national and international award-winning scholars, researchers, writers, activists, podcast hosts, ethicists, choreographers, visual artists, and more.


Come To Make An Impact

Majors in Black Study will design their own partnership with a local activist, artist, or community organization invested in Black life and lives as part of a creative research project, contributing to the uplift of Black communities in and beyond the University.
