The African American Studies minor provides an interdisciplinary investigation of the origins, experiences, conditions, accomplishments, and contributions of people of African ancestry in the Americas. The program is designed for all students who want to deepen their understanding of African Americans by studying their earlier history in Africa, their transition to the New World, and the diasporic experiences in the Americas. The program also seeks to promote new ways of thinking about race, culture and social representation from different perspectives - notably, historical, literary, sociological, anthropological, psychological and artistic.
