Clark Atlanta University Establishes a Ph.D. Program in the Humanities

cauClark Atlanta University, the historically Black educational institution in Georgia, has received permission from the Commission of Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to begin offering a Ph.D. program in humanities. The university hopes to enroll the first students in the new doctoral program in the spring 2015 semester.

Since 1982, Clark Atlanta University has offered a doctor of arts degree in humanities with concentrations in African-American studies, Africana women’s studies, English, history and Romance languages. A total of eight three-credit courses (four required and four electives) with a focus on research and scholarship has been added to the department’s doctoral curriculum to satisfy the Ph.D. requirement.

    First I am a PROUD Clark Atlanta Alum (GO MIGHTY PANTHERS). To the point: The university is changing from a D.A. to a Ph.D. because grads were having trouble getting hired with a D.A. In any event, another milestone for a school that offered Blacks the opportunity to get advanced degrees when other schools would not.
