Minor in African American Studies at USCB
A minor in African American Studies helps our students, faculty, staff and community members consider a fuller range of the multifaceted and interrelated cultures and experiences of African Americans and people of African descent. This minor allows participants to engage with complex issues in innovative ways that are often beyond the scope of other programs. Courses employ interdisciplinary tools and resources to help explore and evaluate historical and contemporary cultural, social, economic and political developments from the perspective of people of African descent in the US. As an area of academic inquiry, African American Studies comprises a discreet, integral body of knowledge and is very well-suited as a minor for all other fields of study.
