About the Program
African American Studies is an interdisciplinary major in which students explore the history, culture, and experiences of African Americans. Courses examine race and race relations, the cultural contributions of African Americans, the social, historical, political, and economic status of African Americans, the intersection of race, class, and gender issues, and theoretical concerns about the relation of race to knowledge. Students have the benefit of numerous local cultural, governmental, educational, and social service institutions where they can gain real world experience in African American Studies.
