The minor in Africana Studies is very similar to the major. Minors do not fulfill the language or capstone requirements, and need fewer total credit hours than majors. Students must:
- Take a gateway course (either AFST 150 or AFST 205, Introduction to Africana Studies),
- Take a methods course (AFST 399, Africana Studies Methodologies), and
- Choose a regional introductory course.
Specific requirements for the minor are listed in the Undergraduate Catalog. We strongly suggest, though it is not required, that you choose a faculty advisor for your Africana Studies minor. An advisor can help you select courses and guide you to other resources that will help you meet your goals.
