Offered on campus
The Bachelor of Arts in Africana Studies degree comprises 33 of 120 total credit hours, utilizing Africana Studies program-specific courses as well as classes from other School of Liberal Arts (SLA) departments.
There are a total of 12 credit hours in four required core courses to ensure coherence within the degree.
An additional 9 credit hours are required in one of three area concentrations—Africa, North America, or Latin America and Caribbean—and must include courses from at least two different SLA departments and at least two courses at the 300 level or higher.
Completion of the degree also requires 12 credit hours from an extensive list of Africana Studies program and/or SLA department courses.
The degree’s thematic requirements reinforce breadth with intellectual depth by optimizing opportunities to concentrate the student's coursework regionally.
Students may take up to 6 hours of AFRO A495 independent-study credit within the major but can count no more than 3 credits in any specific area concentration.
Checklists for the Africana Studies undergraduate major, the minor, and the certificate in African Studies, as well as the SLA General Education requirements, can be found on SLA's Liberal Arts Degrees page.
