Graduate Admissions

Graduate Admissions Policy – Important Update

Due to the ongoing consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Yale African American Studies Department has decided to pause doctoral admissions to our Combined Degree Program for one year, and will not be accepting applications in Fall 2020.

This decision reflects the faculty’s considered commitment to support students already enrolled in the program, and our wish to provide the resources for their study, health, and welfare. We plan to resume admissions in the Fall 2021 to admit a class for 2022-23.

We thank you for your interest in African American Studies at Yale University.
