African American Studies

A guide with resources and tips for doing research in African American Studies

African American Studies is one of the minors offered by the Ethnic Studies Program of the School for Cultural and Social Transformation. This minor allows for a more concentrated focus on a specific racialized population in the United States—in this case, peoples of African, African American, and African Caribbean heritage. Students pursuing a minor in African American Studies can choose classes from four content areas: History and Politics, Contemporary Issues, Literature and Language, and Gender and Ethnicity. Through your coursework, you will gain a broad view of the point where race, gender, and contemporary issues intersect.
