Black Studies, Minor

Black Studies is an interdisciplinary field that includes arts, history, sciences, geography, literature, sociology, and political science, amongst other disciplines. This field explores the history and lived experience of people of African descent, their shared experiences, contributions, victories, and struggles.

The main goal of the Black Studies program is to encourage learning, reflection, and knowledge production centered on the histories and experiences of Black people. Students will be introduced to the reconnecting ideologies, social movements, migrations, creations, experiences, and rediscoveries that make up the links in history, politics, and the culture of African Americans as well as Black people in Africa and around the world.
