Admission to the Minor

Minor Requirements

Students wishing to minor in African American Studies must complete a minimum of 5 semester courses, all of which are housed or cross-listed with African American Studies. (Other courses may be counted with the approval of the chair.) Of these 5 courses, at least 3 courses must be 200 level or higher. Students must take the Gateway course (AFAM101), one course in African American History, and one course in African American Literature. Generally, tutorials and student forms do not count, although the chair may count one after hearing compelling reasons from the student.
