Additional Information on the African and African Diaspora Studies program
plus five additional electives
Students must ensure that at least three of the electives (nine credits) are at the 300 level or above. Furthermore, students must choose elective courses from both the humanities as well as the social and behavioral sciences and must fulfill a distribution component of at least one course (three credits) in African Studies and one course (three credits) in African Diaspora Studies.
The following courses do not meet the requirements for African or African Diaspora distribution credits, yet may be taken as electives by majors and minors. Students may also petition to count any African and African Diaspora studies related course currently being offered at Tulane or taken at other universities as part of their own curriculum. Such petitions will be considered by the program director in consultation with the program Executive Committee.
