2021-2022 Undergraduate Catalog

African American Studies

The African American Studies minor (AFAM) explores major themes and issues animating African America both historically and contemporaneously. It also invests students with a better understanding of the ways that race and racial discrimination are and have been operative in American society. This minor helps students engage more meaningfully with issues of diversity, which, given the growing racial and ethnic heterogeneity of American society, is a crucial career skill in virtually any field.
