African and African-American Studies, Minor

The African and African American Studies Program provides students with a strong foundation in the histories, cultures, politics, and critical and creative production of African, African American, and African-descended people worldwide. The program focuses on core knowledges that help students develop strong analytical skills to examine the multiple ways that African-descended peoples have continued to shape ideas and culture, nationally and globally.
