Admission to the concentration

Applicants must be in good standing in their master's and doctoral programs, including Anthropology, History, Educational Psychology, African Studies, Sociology, Political Science, and Education Policy, Organization and Leadership (EPOL), and demonstrate an interest in African American Studies. Applicants must submit three letters of recommendation, a brief personal essay that includes a statement of purpose that describes their background, career plans, and explains how a concentration in African American Studies enhances their primary program of study.

A student’s intent to pursue a graduate concentration must be approved by the student’s advisor and graduate program director. The student’s major department will determine how many graduate hours of the concentration may count toward the degree requirements in the student’s program.
