  • 12/11-Howard University Unveils New Hip-Hop Courses

    After exploring ways to enhance academic course offerings by including courses that focus on Hip-Hop, Howard University recently unveiled three new Hip-Hop related courses in the spring semester of 2007.

    The upcoming classes are geared toward engaging undergraduate students in a critical analysis of Hip-Hop using research, policy, and program review, as well as including activist perspectives.

    Undergrad students will be able to enroll in “Hip-Hop and the African-American Experience” in the spring and next fall, the university plans to offer another new Hip-Hop course titled “Black Youth and Hip-Hop” to students.

    "Hopefully the success of the courses will motivate other departments at the university to develop new and innovative courses that study Hip-Hop from a historical, cultural, and contemporary perspective," said Joshua Kondwani Wright, a doctoral student in Howard's Department of History.

    In addition to the undergraduate students, Howard plans to offer a graduate class to students called “Hip-Hop History.”

    The seminar will include AJ Calloway, the original host of BET's 106 & Park, as a frequent guest lecturer.

    Early this spring, Howard played host to a "Hip-Hop and Higher Education Symposium" that focused on creating Hip-Hop related courses at Howard University.

    The courses were designed to serve as a model for other Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in hopes that they will eventually incorporate them into their curriculums.

              you're right, you should see if you can teach at Howard and see if you can enlighten those people on what good music really is...

                That's the dumbest shit I've ever heard. Hip-hop isn't the only "good music" out there, as a matter of fact hip-hop is getting worse and worse as we speak, expand your musical knowledge, homeslice.

                    Good job Howard. I am sure they will be popular as hell classes. Listening to hip hop + taking classes on it = best thing ever.

                        Hi man! Is it a joke? I can't believe that it is real hip hop courses. If you have some troubles with studying at your university, I can advise you on the best dissertation proofreading services, which I used regularly while studying. Because there are professionals who are seeing into different themes, including the one you need. I wrote my dissertation on a similar subject, so I carefully chose a specialist. Good luck!
