Africana Studies Major Requirements
Major Requirement Changes Effective Fall 2107
Students who declared the major prior to Fall 2017 should consult with their Advisors to complete the Africana Studies checklist for AY2012-2016 in their senior year.
The major in Africana Studies consists of ten interdisciplinary and disciplinary courses drawn from the interrelated fields of African studies, African Diaspora studies, African American studies, and courses focused on comparative studies or topics relevant to Africana studies. Students declaring an Africana Studies major in AY 2017 and beyond will pursue the major according to the following structure:
One Introductory course, drawn from the following
circulating courses: Introduction to Africana
Studies; WEB DuBois and the Foundations of Africana;
A World View of Race; Black World Literature.
Category II (Methodology and Concentration): a course drawn from the following courses: Race and US Africa Policy; Black Feminist Theories; African Politics; Youth of Color; Critical Race Theory; African History; History of African-American Music
(Distribution/Electives): at least five of these
courses should come from the student's main area of
concentration (drawn from the designated areas
Africa, African America, and Other Diasporas). The
other three should be selected from the other two
areas, at least one from each.
Africana Studies Minor Requirements
The Africana Studies Minor requires six disciplinary and interdisciplinary courses drawn from African studies, African Diaspora studies, African American studies, and comparative studies or topics relevant to Africana studies. Of these six courses, two are core courses and four are electives.
Students are encouraged to declare their interest in an Africana Studies minor not later than the beginning of their senior year. One elective may be an independent study course (including senior honors thesis); three courses may be counted towards a major; normally up to two courses may be transferred from other institutions. At least one course of the minor must be at the 100 level. Courses with grades lower than C- will not be accepted towards the minor.
