African-American Studies is an interdisciplinary program that spans several disciplines, including art, history, literature, politics, sociology, and music. Courses listed below meet the requirements of the African-American studies minor, but other courses across the curriculum that include an appropriate proportion of material on Africans or African-Americans may be substituted with the approval of the program's advisory committee. In such cases, students may petition the committee to allow other relevant courses.
A minor in African-American studies requires completion of 21 credits. In meeting the requirements of this interdisciplinary minor, a student must use at least nine credits that are not also used to meet the requirements of any other major or minor.
