African Studies Minor

Students desiring a minor in African and African-American Studies may select one of three areas of concentration: African Diaspora Studies, African Studies, or African-American Studies. Minors (especially African Diaspora Studies minors) are encouraged to elect at least one diaspora course, which may be substituted for either area requirement. A senior seminar is not required, but is strongly recommended.

The MINOR in AFRICAN STUDIES consists of six courses.


One survey course, AAAS 11 “Introduction to African Studies,” is required.

Five elective courses on Africa, which must include at least one course with each of the following distributive designations:

  • One course in SOC, TMV, or TAS
  • One course in ART or LIT

Prospective minors: please complete the AAAS Minor Worksheet in consultation with the Chair, and hand it in to the Program Office.
