Summary or Abstract : The way in which African Americans perceive their experiences during post-secondary education can have a profound effect on their careers and life choices. This study used qualitative methods to examine how 21 African American males and females perceived their post-secondary educational experiences.Explored through semi-structured interviews and surveys were the interrelationships between how these experiences influenced academic and vocational career choices. Using qualitative methodology, were identified eight themes relating to these professionals experiences in health related and non-health related disciplines in post-secondary education.The themes identified were (a) racism and discrimination, (b) minority faculty mentors, (c) spirituality, (d) careers, (e) support systems, (f) attitudes and self-esteem, (g) specific feelings, and (h) isolation and segregation.Recommendations derived from the findings included the 21 African American participants embracing their experiences, which provided insight and validation for other African American students pursuing post-secondary education. Findings supported Asante's (2003) Afrocentric approach, Bandura's (1986) Self-Efficacy Theory, and Patterson's (2006) Enlighten Black Womanist model, which described the cultural and gender development of African Americans as they matriculate through the post-secondary process..
