    Spring 2014 Registration Information

    for Students Majoring or Minoring in African, African American, and Diaspora Studies

    In the spring 2014 semester, the department is offering a single section of AAAD 395, which is open to students in both the African studies and African American and Diaspora studies concentrations.  If you are planning to graduate in May 2014, August 2014, or December 2014, and need this course to graduate, you should enroll in this section.  Likewise, if you are currently a junior and are planning on writing an Honors thesis in 2014-2015, you must enroll in AAAD 395; AAA 395 is a prerequisite for the Honors thesis (AAAD 691H).

    In the spring 2014 semester, the department is offering a section of AAAD 487.  If you are planning to graduate in May 2014, August 2014, or December 2014, and need this course to graduate, you should enroll in this section.

    The requirements for the major and minor are published in the Undergraduate Bulletin/ 2013-2014 Record.

    But if you were enrolled in Carolina prior to fall 2013, you are still able to complete the major or minor requirements that were in effect at the time you entered.  Here are the old requirements and the new courses you can take to meet them.
