Abstract

Black Studies programs are disappearing on college campuses. There is a need to know why these programs are being phased out of school curriculums.

Two contributing factors leading to the disappearance of Black Studies are: the lack of student enrollment, and the cutback in the government education budget.

A two-part survey was used to obtain an idea of what students think about Black Studies and if they consider them important. The result of the survey indicates that students know the importance of Black Studies but enroll in programs that may offer better financial stability.
