African and African American Studies

Exploring the Major — Students considering African and African American Studies as a major should begin exploring the discipline through introductory AFR courses, choosing one or more that appeals to them. Most 100-level or 200-level AFR courses can serve this purpose.

Admission to the Major — No special curricular requirements must be met for admission into the African and African American Studies major.

Course Sequencing Considerations (in order to complete degree requirements within eight terms) AFR 165 (also HIS), AFR 222, and AFR 260 (also HIS) must be completed before enrolling in AFR 350/450 (according to junior/senior status).

Other Considerations in the Major — Transfer students who come to Berea with the experience of having courses in Africana Studies will have their previous course considered for credit as a distribution course in the AFR major.
