The major in African and African American studies is an interdisciplinary degree program housed in the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences.Its comparative focus and multidisciplinary emphasis complement many existing programs that seek to prepare undergraduate students for competitive careers and productive work in a global world of different cultures, political systems, and economic infrastructures. Students pursuing a degree in AAAS will develop a broad perspective on human values and ethnic diversity, as well as an understanding of the socio-political, religious, and historical evidence related to African peoples, both in Africa and the diasporic communities of North America and the Atlantic world. Students are encouraged to combine a major in AAAS with others at East Carolina University.
