Africana Studies Concentration

About Africana Studies Concentration

The Fulton School of Liberal Arts offers a major in interdisciplinary studies leading to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science. The major accommodates students who wish to develop programs of study in two or more disciplines or create a major in an area of study not offered by any traditional major at SU. This program allows students to create an individual and flexible major that is best suited to their interests or career goals. Most importantly, this program gives students the opportunity to integrate information across disciplines to help gain a more complete understanding of the chosen area of study.

Students majoring in interdisciplinary studies may choose a concentration in Africana studies. This concentration highlights Africana experiences through academic programs in anthropology, art, conflict analysis and dispute resolution, communication, English, environmental studies, geography, history, international studies, modern languages, music, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology, and social work.

  • Complete upper-level courses with grades of C or better.
  • A maximum of 15 hours of upper-level transfer credits may be accepted toward the interdisciplinary studies major.
  • Demonstrate 102-level proficiency in a foreign language.
