African American Studies Minor - Archive

Abington College (AFAAB)
University Park, College of the Liberal Arts (AFAMR)


The Department of African and African American Studies awards a certificate to students who, in addition to meeting the requirements for a major, complete 18 credits in the African American Studies minor. This minor is designed for students interested in African American culture and the educational, social, political, and economic development of people of African descent in the United States. In particular, it provides students with the opportunity to explore the experiences of African Americans using theories and methods originating in the field. Students are made aware of the potential to apply such knowledge to the solution of social, political, and economic problems. The minor also promotes greater understanding of the relationship between African Americans and other ethnic groups. A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
