African-American Studies is an interdisciplinary curriculum that examines the experiences of people of the African Diaspora -- sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the United States and Canada and Europe. At Columbia University, the Institute offers more than sixty courses in ten different academic departments and programs each year. The academic program for undergraduate students in Columbia College and General Studies includes a Major and Concentration in African-American Studies. All undergraduate students are advised by a member of the Undergraduate Educational Committee (UndEC), of which the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) is a member. Students should schedule an appointment with an UndEC member to discuss their programs of study. All Majors and Concentrators are responsible for providing their permanent and local mailing addresses, phone number and email address to Sharon Harris, the Institute's Administrative Assistant email@example.com.
