Courses

Preapproved courses listed here may be taken for credit towards the Certificate without prior authorization if they are outside your home department.  Other courses are eligible with approval by the Graduate Director.  You may include disciplinary methodology courses as electives.  All students are required to take the Graduate Seminar in Africana Studies.  It is currently being offered every Spring semester, so please plan accordingly.

 

The required Graduate Seminar in Africana Studies offers an introduction to the modes of inquiry of the discipline, the practice of interdisciplinarity, and key issues within the field.  The course also features several conversations with faculty specialists in Africana scholarship from a variety of disciplines.  Students develop a research project related to their work in their major field utilizing the tools and scholarship of Africana Studies, and will also do one short post translating their scholarship into public discourse.
