Black Studies Minor

The Black Studies minor offers students the opportunity to examine developments and ideas in the African diaspora, especially the United States, and Africa from an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspective. As such, it provides opportunities to explore social, political, intellectual and artistic currents in the Americas, Africa, and Europe with relevance to Blacks and Africans of the diaspora as well as their arts, culture, and literature.
