About this Program
The African-American Studies program, an interdisciplinary minor, is designed to prepare students for graduate study in this and related areas.
African American Studies enables all Hood College students to expand their knowledge and appreciation of the history and culture of people of African descent . Firmly based in liberal arts, the minor’s interdisciplinary curriculum provides students with the opportunity to study the lives and contemporary experiences of people of African descent in America. The program focuses primarily on African Americans in the United States, but includes a series of courses on African culture, history and politics worldwide.
The curriculum is structured to give students the opportunity to examine the interrelated dynamics of class, gender, race, ethnicity, politics and identity.
