Undergraduate Catalog 2019-2020

African Studies Minor

The Minor in African Studies is designed to introduce students to the study of African society, experience, and cultures. Students offering the minor must obtain a grade C or better in each class. They can petition the Dean to approve a course that focuses on African issues but is not found on the list of courses. However, no more than two courses can be taken from any one discipline such as English or Sociology. Students can also earn credits towards the minor by attending a study abroad program in Africa approved by the Coordinator.
