The minor in African American Studies provides an interdisciplinary investigation of the experiences, conditions, origins, accomplishments, and contributions of people of African ancestry in the United States. Students may deepen their appreciation and understanding of African-Americans by studying their earlier history in Africa, their transition to the New World, and their diasporic experiences in other parts of the world. The African-American Studies Program is comprised of eighteen courses offered through seven departments of instruction within the College of Arts and Sciences.   
The minor in African-American Studies takes advantage of those characteristics of the African-American experience that make it uniquely valuable for serious academic study and teaching, for it exposes students to the diversity and unity of the African-American experience as well as to the similarities and differences among the cultures of Africa.
