  • African Studies Minor

    Hours: 15 credits, completed with minimum grades of C

    A minor in African studies can be taken in conjunction with a department or interdisciplinary major leading to the bachelor’s degree in the colleges of Agricultural and Life Sciences, Business Administration, Education, Fine Arts, Journalism and Communications, or Liberal Arts and Sciences. The faculty is composed of more than 100 members campuswide who teach courses with African content.

    The minor provides a solid foundation for careers in teaching, research and other professional work for which knowledge of Africa is essential. Students can complete a recommended concentration or they can take courses from several concentrations.

    The center offers semester and academic-year programs at the University of Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and the University of Botswana.
