About the Major
The African American Studies minor focuses on African and African
American history and culture related especially to the experiences
of African people living in the Americas. The program provides
students with knowledge and an understanding of an Afrocentric
world view and traces the roots of oppression of African people.
Additionally, the minor encourages students to continue their
involvement in African American scholarship and make strong
contributions to the increasingly multicultural American society
by becoming proactive members of their communities.
