Purpose and Focus

The Bachelor of Arts degree allows the student to pursue Anthropology or Afro-American Studies as a major in the context of a liberal arts curriculum. The degree in anthropology is a balance of practical, applied research and a broad-based academic curriculum, providing not only insights into the nature of humankind but also the background necessary to find career opportunities wherever understanding of human beings and sensitivity to ethnic differences are needed. The degree in Afro-American Studies is designed to provide students with the critical tools required and to expose them to the historical knowledge and current research necessary for an informed understanding of the Afro-American experience today. The program is also designed to effectively prepare students who desire to continue on to graduate work in Afro-American Studies.
