Department of African American Studies


African American Studies majors often pursue graduate and professional degree programs in Business, Education, History, International Relations, Law, Political Science, Psychology, Public Health, and Social Work. Career opportunities with a B.A. only in African American Studies include employment in community health agencies, public and private schools, and non-profit organizations. Current or prospective students in African American Studies are encouraged to schedule an advising appointment to determine an appropriate and effective course plan and to discuss career and graduate / professional school opportunities.

Whether you're interested in declaring an AFAM major, planning your course schedule, or applying to graduate, our adviser is happy to help. To schedule an advising appointment, contact:
