Our program provides a broad liberal arts education and prepares for the increasingly rigorous expectations of prospective employers. Our program appeals to students considering admission to graduate or professional schools, and careers in education, business, law, politics, the media and publishing, international relations, arts and performance, development or humanitarian aid, and global health, or social work.
We offer a Bachelor of Arts and minor to equip students with bodies of knowledge that emerge from studying the culture, history and social reality of African and African-American peoples, and of those of African descent across the diaspora.
For Graduate Students:
Combining course work, teaching and research, we also offer a Graduate Certificate for students enrolled in doctoral and master's programs at Duke.
