Afro-American Studies in Colleges and Universities of New York State, 1968-69 and 1969-70.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Information Center on Education.
Information for a survey of courses in Afro-American studies offered in New York State's colleges and universities was obtained from institutions containing 98% of the state's full-time enrollment. Nearly half of the institutions offered either graduate or undergraduate courses in Afro-American studies. Four-year institutions more often offered courses than 2 year ones. The majority of courses were at the undergraduate level. In 1968-69 almost all of the courses were degree-credit. Many of the institutions, especially the 2 year ones, planned to initiate or expand their course offerings in Afro-American studies. Enrollment in these studies represented 5% of the total full-time undergraduate enrollment of the institutions at which these courses were given. Graduate enrollment represents 4.5% of the total full-time enrollment at these institutions. Courses in Afro-American studies and enrollment in these courses was closely related to the institution's proximity to large metropolitan areas. In 1968-69 approximately 27.2% of the instructors in the courses were non-white. Most were new at their institution and most had had some special training. (AF)
