Degree Options:
  • Minor

The African-American Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program designed to give students a general introduction on the role of African-Americans in the making of the modern world.

With a major focus on African-American history and culture, the minor also asks the student to consider issues of race and class within and beyond the borders of the United States, particularly Africa, Europe, and the Americas.

Established in 2011, the Center for African-American Studies is an academic resource center committed to bringing academic research to the broadest possible audience, within and beyond the walls of the university. Our mission is to foster the development of the knowledge of people of African descent in North America and throughout the greater Diaspora.
