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 Requirement


Several courses within this major may fulfill parts of the Hunter Core Requirement (CUNY Common Core Requirement [CCCR], 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: Hunter Core Requirement - Fall 2013 to Spring 2019  

In the case of the Africana and Puerto Rican/Latino Studies major, the courses that meet CCCR are:

Honors
