African-American Studies, Minor

Program Description

The African-American studies minor offers a broad curriculum dedicated to the study of Black life in the Americas and the Diaspora from 1350 to the present. The African-American studies program develops and coordinates an interdisciplinary curriculum. Its objectives are to encourage all students and faculty to examine the African-American experience, to facilitate a cultural and intellectual atmosphere on campus that will be favorable to such studies, and to develop a program of research and community service. The program also has a "nationally recognized" African-American lecture series, featuring nationally and internationally known scholars in the field of Black studies.
