BA in Africana and Puerto Rican/Latino Studies


Given the interdisciplinary organization of the department, students may elect to concentrate their program of study in the Africana sequence, Puerto Rican/Latino sequence or a combination of both with courses from social sciences and humanities offered by the department.

Hunter Core Requirements


Note:  Several courses leading to (foundational) or within this major may fulfill parts of the Hunter Core Requirement (CUNY Common Core [CCC], Hunter Focus, Concurrent Requirements).  When selecting courses, it may be to a student’s advantage to choose courses that count toward the Hunter Core Requirement and also advance the student on the path to the major.  Details on the Hunter Core Requirement can be found here:
