Double Majoring in Africology and African American Studies and other Disciplines

As a multi-subject discipline, Africology and African American Studies lends itself to double majoring with a wide variety of other disciplines, depending upon the skillset, intellectual interests and career interests of the student. Within the limits of the 124 credit hours required for obtaining an undergraduate degree from EMU, a student has room enough to complete two areas of expertise, that is, two majors. Double majoring enables a student to be able to validly claim two areas of expertise, which can only help, not hurt, in today's unstable job market. If you choose to double major in African American Studies and a second major, take note that you must seek and receive advising for your second major from the department that hosts that second major. For all questions pertaining to your African American Studies major, you can contact Dr. Victor Okafor, either by email at vokafor@emich.edu or by telephone at 734.487.3460.
