The program in Africana studies is designed to provide students with a sound understanding of the black experience nationally and internationally. The interdepartmental and interdisciplinary features of the program allow for a broad and varied exposure to black culture, economics, politics, and history from Africa to the Americas. Each Africana studies major must take 36 credits in courses approved for the major. Thus, the program focuses the course of study on material that prepares students for meaningful careers of their choice and/or advanced-degree training.

Students who wish to major or minor in Africana studies should consult with the program director. A grade-point average of 2.0 or better is required in courses for the major or minor in Africana studies.

In addition to the college curriculum requirements, see the Major Requirements page for the requirements that must be met to satisfy the Africana studies major.
