African American Studies

African American Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the varied social, economic, political, literary, artistic, and cultural aspects of the African American experience. This minor is open to all students and can be tailored to meet a student’s intellectual and professional goals. These courses benefit anyone wishing to incorporate concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion into their major areas of study.

Because this is an interdisciplinary minor, only two courses from one discipline will count toward a minor in that field. For example, a student minoring in both African American Studies and History could take four history courses for African American Studies, but only two would count toward a History minor.
