Black Studies Concentration

20 credits

Black Studies Concentration is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach to studying and understanding the experiences of African people and African-descended people across the Diaspora.  It will give students the opportunity to experience the various ways our society is shaped by and benefits from African and Afro-American culture.  With increased attention on the history of the U.S. and the role of Africans and Afro-Americans in it, this Concentration will be beneficial to understanding how to make the United States more socially, economically and philosophically aware of social justice.

Students may choose to complete this concentration of study and have it posted to their transcript ONLY when the student successfully completes the Associate in Arts Degree, AA-DTA. Otherwise, courses taken will transfer to four-year universities on a course-by-course basis only.

Students are urged to consult with their Green River advisor to plan their programs of study. Students are also urged to consult with a representative from the university they plan to attend.

Students must complete the required courses with a 2.0 GPA.
