Africana Studies Departmental Honors Program
Departmental majors with a minimum G.P.A. of 3.33 in Africana Studies courses as specified in the major requirements and an overall G.P.A. of 3.0 are eligible to enroll in the Africana Studies Honors program at the beginning of their senior year.
The student must submit a proposal to the Department indicating the merit of the proposed research after asking a faculty member to be a sponsor for the project. This should be done in the semester prior to beginning the project. The faculty sponsor must submit a statement of support for the proposal.
The resulting project is read and evaluated by a committee consisting of the faculty sponsor and two faculty members (one may be a member of a department outside of Africana Studies). If the honors project is completed successfully, honors are conferred.
