The Department of African American Studies offers two undergraduate curriculum options. The first is the general AASP curriculum without a concentration, which allows students to explore a variety of topics in cultural and historical analysis, civic engagement and social justice, health and well-being, Black youth and families, gender and identity, the African diaspora, and structural racism.

The second curriculum option is a formal Concentration in Public Policy. This concentration allows students to focus the majority of their coursework on topics focused on public policy and the Black community, including African American/Black politics, education, criminal justice, civic engagement, and social justice.
