African American Studies majors often pursue graduate and professional degree programs in Business, Education, History, International Relations, Law, Political Science, Psychology, Public Health, and Social Work. Career opportunities with a B.A. only in African American Studies include employment in community health agencies, public and private schools, and non-profit organizations. Current or prospective students in African American Studies are encouraged to schedule an advising appointment to determine an appropriate and effective course plan and to discuss career and graduate / professional school opportunities.
