Course info

Summary

The Africana Studies (AFRS) major is a multidisciplinary academic major (45 units) designed for students who wish to gain an understanding of the history, psychology, sociology, literature, culture and education of African-Americans and other Africans in the diaspora and the continent. The three specific options within the major enable students to concentrate their efforts on certain aspects of this broad subject. These options are intended to enhance students’ preparation for both graduate school and employment. By carefully selecting Title 5 and General Education courses in consultation with a AFRS advisor, students majoring in AFRS also have the opportunity to complete a second major. For example, a double major in AFRS and Urban Studies and Planning can be completed with the selection of Option I (below) plus the core course requirements in Urban Studies and Planning. Consult an advisor for other possible combinations within the major.

Student Learning Outcomes

The interdisciplinary degree program in Africana Studies enables the graduate to gain an understanding of the political-social-historical cultural perspectives of the African-American and African experience. Students also will learn key concepts and fundamental literature; a knowledge of the broad cultural, political and historical contexts in which the African-American experience took place; and appropriate skills in research design and methodology used to examine the various interdisciplinary areas (e.g., political-historical, humanities, socio-psychological) of Africana Studies.
