African and African-American Studies

Combining a traditional liberal arts perspective with interdisciplinary skills of investigation, analysis and communication, the African/African-American program draws from many disciplines and culminates in an independent capstone project designed to integrate two or more areas of study.

To explore the rich history and culture of Africa and the descendants of Africa in America, the program integrates courses from art history, English, government, history, philosophy, religion, sociology and theatre.

The AAAS program culminates in an independent capstone project. Courses applied toward requirements for AAAS also may be counted for other programs, majors or minors. Successful completion of the program will be noted on the transcript and on the program for Commencement exercises.
