Program: Minor in African Studies

Program Description

The minor in African Studies is designed to provide an interdisciplinary approach to the study of African history, literature, politics, geography and cultures. It provides a background for advanced study of Africa and for teaching Africa and world cultures in elementary and secondary schools. Students may take courses in several departments that satisfy the minor requirements or may use these courses as electives in their majors. All students interested in the African Studies minor must see a member of the Program Committee or the Coordinator of African Studies to work out a program that will meet their own specific needs and interests.
