GENERAL (610) COURSE DESCRIPTIONS


AFRO-AMERICAN STUDIES (614)

The objectives of Afro-American Studies are to provide a systematic study of the experiences, conditions, and origins of Afro-American people, their philosophical, religious, and social values, their various modes of artistic expression, and the way in which each of these cultural aspects is interrelated. In this way Afro-American Studies provides the student with an opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding of the history, social organization, current conditions, and problems that face Afro-Americans as a racial minority in the United States. Additionally, the study of the Afro-American experience will unfold and analyze the Afro-American contribution to the American heritage.

Chicano Studies provides the student with an opportunity to study the role of the Chicano in, and his relationship to, United States society in general. These courses serve to broaden perceptions of the origins, conditions, and experiences of Hispanics by exploring their social and philosophical values. The study of the Chicano/Latino experience includes an examination of Chicano history and literature, culture and political thought from earliest antecedents to the present day.
