Today, students of level 100 Communication Studies at African University College of Communications,  AUCC, attended class clothed in beautiful African prints.

The students were asked by their Africana Studies lecturer Prince Ofei  Darko to attend class dressed in attire that represents their African heritage. Each student was also tasked to give a presentation on the clan they belong to, complimenting it with appropriate proverbs and pointing to what makes their clan unique.

The students said this was one of the most interesting and interactive classes they have ever had so far in the course. Many said they learned a lot about their own and other African people’s heritage.

“I presented on my Akan culture, the founding of my people, and I gave proverbs and symbols that identify my clan among other clans in Ghana,” Marian, a student, said.

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.

The Kwabena Nketia Centre for Africana Studies at AUCC 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 African University College of Communications also has a top notch business school, Sam Jonah School of Business, to give you the best foundation and knowledge making you competitive in today’s business and entrepreneur world.
