The Departments of Communication and Minority Studies offer an interdepartmental major in Afro-American studies and communication that reflects an interdisciplinary and substantive field of study. An interdepartmental major in communication and Afro-American studies focuses the specialization of the study of the human communication process within the Afro-American experience. This focus enhances the application of principles, methods, and findings of communication studies in light of the history, culture, and theories of the Afro-American experience, including an Africana perspective. Students will integrate their communication studies emphasis (public and rhetorical communication, relational communication, media studies, or communication and culture) into the Afro-American studies major to create a systematic and coherent field of study.
The chairpersons of the Departments of Minority Studies and Communication must jointly advise the interdepartmental major. Students must complete a total of 45 credit hours in the interdepartmental major.
