What can I do with a Black Studies major?

The interdisciplinary field of Blacks Studies—alternatively called African American Studies, Afro-American Studies, Africana Studies, Pan African Studies, or Black World Studies, depending on the school where it is offered---is a relative newcomer on the academic scene and its proponents have had to defend its theoretical underpinnings and practicality, something which the traditional liberal arts fields are also challenged to do but not to the same extent.

Robert Fikes, Jr., Librarian at San Diego State University has meticulously updated and expanded a fourth edition of “What Can I Do With a Black Studies Major?” which more than doubles the number of persons listed in the third edition and further establishes the viability of a Black Studies degree in the job market and as a stepping stone to most fields of graduate study.

This latest edition adds more than three hundred professionals who earned degrees in Black Studies. Among the new additions are 28 doctors, a Pulitzer Prize winner, 2 judges, 2 U.S. Ambassadors, 2 mayors, 5 Rhodes Scholars, 6 college presidents, a sommelier (wine steward), a sports photographer, 3 beauty queens, 5 filmmakers, a Rabbi, a Catholic priest, a sculptor, and a comic book artist.
