The Africana Studies Department is designed to allow students maximum flexibility to tailor their major to their interests and needs. Students should therefore seek faculty advisement upon entering the program and routinely thereafter. Faculty advisors work with students to provide information about departmental requirements, course availability, course-work and career options. Advisors will also help students prepare for graduate work in Africana Studies and related fields. All Africana Studies majors must have on file an Advisement Form, available from the department office.
Students expecting to graduate must also fill out a Graduation Advisement Form by the third week of the semester prior to the expected semester of graduation. Both forms must be filled out in consultation with department faculty or a designated (Africana Studies) department undergraduate advisor.
Note: any regular, full-time Africana Studies professor can advise you. Adjunct professors do not advise majors.
The Africana Major Worksheets will help you decide which courses to take. Before meeting with an advisor you should print out and fill out the appropriate worksheet below. The worksheets below are all PDF files.
