Transfer Students


Greetings! The Department of Africana Studies offers students a Bachelor of Arts degree in one of three options: Africana Social Sciences, Humanities & Cultural Studies, or Urban Education, in addition to a minor in Africana Studies. We particularly encourage new transfer students to join our department. Our interdisciplinary curriculum concentrates on the experiences, achievements, and contributions of people of African descent in North America, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, and Europe from a culturally relevant perspective. Students who wish to transfer to CSUN and pursue a major in Africana Studies must first be accepted by the university's admissions office before applying to the program. You should then set up an appointment with one of our department advisors so that all transfer credits can be evaluated and applied to the major or minor. Advisors attempt to keep current with the course offerings of a number of feeder institutions. However, since these offerings are subject to change, you are advised to bring course descriptions and syllabi during your advisement meetings.
