When you purse a minor in African-American studies, you will examine, analyze, and interpret the experiences and traditions of people of African descent. In order to complete the minor, you must complete 20 hours of coursework designated as appropriate. Four of the 20 required hours will be fulfilled through the completion of HIST 3170 Afro-American Heritage. The remaining 16 hours may be fulfilled through any courses approved by the director that dedicate at least 25 percent of semester coursework to African-American studies. Courses may be taken in any sequence and vary from year to year.
