The African-American Studies program, an interdisciplinary minor, is designed to prepare students for graduate study in this and related areas. Firmly based in the liberal arts, the minor’s curriculum provides students with the opportunity to study in a systematic fashion the lives and contemporary experiences of African-American men and women. The program focuses primarily on African-Americans in the United States, but includes a series of courses on African culture, history and politics. The curriculum is structured to give students the opportunity to examine the interrelated dynamics of class, gender and race.
