The Africana Studies major consists of 10 courses. Students may take no more than four courses in a single department. For a complete list of requirements for the major please visit the College Catalog.
Students who qualify during their junior year with a minimum GPA and an approved research proposal will be eligible to complete a year-long thesis (AS 498/499) by way of which honors in the major can be earned, and which serves as the capstone for those students. These courses will be taught as independent studies. To qualify for honors at graduation, candidates must earn an average of 3.5 or above in the major, and an overall average of 3.2 or above.
