The Africana Studies Minor teaches you to become an independent researcher and collaborative problem-solver with a focus on analyzing and interpreting the experience of African Americans. Our program appeals to students considering admission to graduate or professional schools and careers in education, business, law, politics, the media and publishing, international relations, arts and performance, development or humanitarian aid and global health as well as social work.
The Africana Studies Minor consists of four courses: two core courses and two electives (20 credits). This minor can be completed entirely online, entirely in-person, or a mixture of the two. If you’re considering this minor, please contact the director of Africana Studies.
