The African American Studies Program provides undergraduate majors and minors with the interdisciplinary tools to study the experiences of people of African descent and the resources to evalutate black historical, cultural, social, economic and political developments in South Carolina, the United States, and beyond. With courses organized around the two broad subject areas of “Society and History” and “Arts and Culture,” students will have the opportunity to explore the breadth of the discipline before focusing on an individual plan of study. The program’s principal strengths include black political and social movements, African-American literature, and comparative cultural anthropology.
