The African Studies minor is designed to give students broad multidisciplinary perspectives on African history, politics, culture, and the economy. The program aims to teach students about the diversity of the African experience and to think critically about the generalized and often incomplete information that are encountered in the media, written texts, and pronouncements of experts, casual observers, residents, and visitors to the continent. Students in African Studies acquire critical information that facilitate their understanding of the multiethnic and multicultural world they live in and become, in the process, global citizens.
