African American Studies Undergraduate Programs


Dr. Robin Muhammad works closely with students in the department.

Solving Problems in American and Global Society

A degree in African American Studies, like all liberal arts degrees, provides students with the foundation to understand the world, how it functions, their responsibilities and opportunities in the world, and how to have an impact on the world, globally and locally. Specifically, however, African American majors learn about the experiences of African Americans in the United States.

The department is committed to producing persons, to use the language of Dr. Nathan Hare, who are capable of solving problems in American (and global) society.


Students with African American Studies majors or minors should contact Dr. Akil Houston at for their adviser for the upcoming academic year.
