Black Studies

Our program offers a strong grounding in the African-American community's past as well as present. We study the unique cultures, collective experiences and connections within the African Diaspora, so that students gain a better understanding of American society as well as better preparation for every career.

In addition to the academic benefits of obtaining the minor, students enjoy the extra-curricular experiences, such as movie series, guest speakers, and an array of community activities. Upon graduation students receive Kente stoles to mark their achievement.

To complete the minor in Black Studies, students take one required course, Introduction to Black Studies, and select an additional five courses from among program and departmental electives. For minors whose interests are not directly addressed in formal course offerings, the program also offers the opportunity for independent readings and research, at the student's initiative, with the support of a faculty sponsor.
