BLACK STUDIES/AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDIES

 

 

The Black Studies program at City College provides an interdisciplinary and systemic approach to the historical and contemporary study of African people in Africa and in the Americas. The program is designed to provide enrichment in the social sciences and humanities by giving students in these areas the opportunity to link the tools of formal analysis to a specific cultural area in the African experience. The student's career and future alternatives may be increased by adding a specialized dimension at the undergraduate level. Students preparing for transfer to a four year university may major in African Studies or humanities, law, social work, or public administration. This will enhance their opportunities in local, national and international organizations, both public and private, through participation in the program. --Description from San Diego City College Catalog 2018-2019
