African American Studies Minor
Rooted in the prophetic traditions and collective achievements of African descendants in the United States, African American Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that cultivates a rich understanding of the diverse perspectives within black cultures.
Students who complete the African American studies minor will survey and articulate the artistic, historical, social, and political thoughts and experiences of African Americans within the broader context of American culture.
Students develop their critical thinking through courses that consider African American contributions to film, literature, rhetoric, sociology, politics and religion. The analytical skills gained in the African American studies minor prepare students for advanced study in the humanities, social sciences, and law.
