The Black Studies course at Malcolm X Institute is designed primarily to increase the self-esteem of black people and educate the black diaspora on the history, politics and legacy of black thinkers and empires. This is in the hopes of creating revolutionary thinkers and leaders to improve the condition of black people worldwide.

The assessment is 100% coursework based and will be marked by a member of staff. Your grade will be emailed to you and you will receive and e-certificate to commemorate your achievement. To pass this course three modules must be completed, you are welcome to audit the remaining modules.
