Bachelor of Arts in African and African Diaspora Studies

The Bachelor of Arts degree in African and African Diaspora Studies offers students an interdisciplinary educational experience that fosters an understanding of the global experiences of African and African-descended peoples in Asia, Europe, and Oceania. In particular, students will gain an appreciation for the diverse character of humanity, explore the complex historical and cultural relations between Africans on the continent and African-descended peoples in the Diaspora, and engage in a comparative study of issues affecting Africans in the continent and the Diasporas.

Students in the major will complete 27 hours of common requirements, including two introductory courses, research methods, foreign language, Senior Seminar, and study abroad, internship, or directed applied research. In addition, students take a minimum of two courses in each of the three concentrations: Arts and Literature; History; and Social Sciences.
