Students pursuing a minor in Africana/Black Studies are required to take an introductory course, HIS 105 Introduction to Africana Studies), and four minor-related elective courses of their choosing. Students may choose between two tracks:
- “Domestic,” which focuses on the African American experience; and
- “Diaspora,” which examines the roots of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and subsequent forced migration throughout the Atlantic World.
Students wishing to complete this minor should consult with the Africana/Black Studies minor coordinator. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in a community outreach internship in pursuit of this minor.
