Liberal Arts - African American Studies A.A. Degree

African-American Studies at Middlesex explores the history, art, and culture of Americans of African descent. Students in this program investigate the complex social structures and cultural traditions that Africans in the Diaspora created. Throughout the program students develop critical analysis and communication skills vital for future success in a baccalaureate program or employment. The broad liberal arts perspective of African American Studies prepares students for careers in education, journalism, law, politics, psychology, city planning, archivist/curator, international relations, publishing, or social work.

Upon completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Articulate their place in human culture and the global society from a multi-disciplinary perspective acquired through the study of the social sciences, humanities, history, natural sciences, mathematics, arts, and languages.
  • Compare the history and cultures of African Americans with the history and cultures of global African diasporic communities.
  • Appraise the African developments of the African American experience in the Americas.
  • Gather, analyze, and synthesize relevant information from various sources and contexts and apply it to issues related to the African diaspora in writing using proper citation.

Transfer Information

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

Are you interested in transferring to a school in New Jersey? You can use the tools at NJTransfer.org to see which of your MCC courses will transfer to a specific college.
