Group in South AfricaWhy minor in Africana and Black Studies?

The Africana and Black Studies minor gives you the opportunity to study with artists, scholars, and community members dedicated to developing critical and innovative curriculum. In addition to completing two required courses in the ABS minor, you choose the areas of study that most interest you and support your future career goals.


The Africana and Black Studies minor offers you a program of study that concentrates on Africa and the African diaspora for your educational and professional objectives. Through this program, you will enhance your understanding of marginalized peoples and prepare to lead and work in diverse communities and a global economy. As an ABS minor, you will have the opportunity to: (1) critically examine your assumptions and preconceptions about race, gender, class, sexuality, religion, and the human experience; and (2) increase your cultural competency and understanding of the dynamics of U.S. and global political, social, and economic systems.
