AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES DEGREES

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES

Not many undergrad students choose to major in african-american studies. Each subject hands out close to 6,156 yearly undergrad degrees; last year, 1,009 students earned a four-year degree in african-american studies, making it the USA's 209th most popular concentration for undergraduates. 44 of those students went to the University of California-Los Angeles, which has the largest department in the US. 214 of those undergraduates came out of institutions from California.

Selecting the best institution for you can probably be difficult, seeing as 201 schools in the United States of America offer a college degree in african-american studies. Four-year degrees in african-american studies are only 4.7% more universally offered than the average major, making it the 101st most broadly available American degree.

GRADUATE DEGREES

While 89% of last spring's degrees in african-american studies were undergrad degrees; 11% were postgrad degrees. African-american studies is the 288th most popular postgraduate degree in the nation, with 129 degrees conferred. For context, african-american studies is 95% less popular among postgraduate students than the average subject.

In Total, 1,138 students received a bachelor's or higher in african-american studies last spring.

ONLINE AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES DEGREES

6 of those 1,138 alumni (0.5%) did their learning comprehensively remotely - 4 undergraduates and 2 postgraduate students. As you can presumably tell, african-american studies is a very unpopular online major. It is currently the 242nd most in-demand remote degree, and 99.2% south of the U.S. average of 481 students per major. For postgrads, it's ranked 296th, and is 99.7% south of the US average (616).

Pennsylvania State University-World Campus​ awarded the most online bachelor's degrees in african-american studies in America (2).

3 schools countrywide grant bachelor's degrees remote, making it the 101st most universally offered online major. 1% of institutions conferring the degree even have a totally remote option, and every institution granting undergrad degree in african-american studies is public.

If you hope to study african-american studies remotely, we recommend you check out the University of Arizona, as it has the 43rd best african-american studies program in the United States.
