African American and Africana Studies
The African American and Africana Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program of study focused on the historical and contemporary experiences of people of African heritage. The study of race, ethnicity, and other forms of collective identity will be central concerns of the minor, as are intersecting issues such as gender, sexuality, diversity, and inclusion.
This minor leads students to a comprehensive understanding of the African American experience and African Diaspora.
