African American Studies Programs.
Williams, Cynthia; And Others
This study of selected colleges and universities is intended to provide insight into a variety of African American studies (AAS) programs and departments to aid in the restructuring of the curriculum and method of instruction in the existing program at the University of South Carolina. As this review of the history and development of such programs demonstrates, the interdepartmental approach has proven effective at institutions with limited funds, as is shown by the examples of several large universities. However, this type of curriculum is most beneficial when there is a defined AAS department offering a variety of fundamental courses taught by a permanent AAS staff. This is the direction recommended for the University of South Carolina. An appendix summarizes types of programs at over 20 institutions, and a second appendix lists AAS programs across the country. (Contains 24 references and a separate list of 51 primary sources in the AAS field.) (SLD)
