African American Studies

Coordinator: Paul E. Raether Distinguished Professor of History Cheryl Greenberg

The African American studies minor is designed to provide students an overview of the history, cultural traditions, and political experiences of African Americans in the United States. The minor consists of one course in each of four required disciplines, one elective at the intermediate level or above, and an integrating exercise of a senior-level seminar or independent project. All courses must be approved in advance by the coordinator. All other course requirements should be completed before embarking on the integrating exercise. Students must earn a minimum of C- for all courses counted toward the minor.
