Interdisciplinary majors

Bring together the best features of a variety of majors or minors into one tidy package with interdisciplinary majors and minors.

Africana studies major: anthropology, history, literature, philosophy, political science, theology

Learn about the historical, cultural and political facets of the African-American experience.
