Sample Four Year Plan

This sample shows just one possible pathway to earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in African and African Diaspora Studies (Africology) in four years. This plan does not replace the advice of your African and African Diaspora Studies advisor or your College Undergraduate Advisor. You are cautioned to meet regularly with both to create a personalized plan that matches your particular circumstances rather than following this verbatim.

The information below reflects the degree requirements for students who began their college education in Fall of 2013 or later. If you started college coursework prior to Fall of 2013, your degree requirements may be different. This plan also assumes that you have tested into college-level math and English classes but have not taken any foreign language during high school.
