Program Scope

The general goals within the course structure of the Black Studies major are to relate logical, artistic, and scientific principles to events both historical and current in the Black community. Particular emphasis is given to content and data accumulated in the behavioral sciences, humanities, and creative arts. Social institutions which directly affect the Black community and the constraints operating on them will be analyzed.
