The Minor in Africology and African American Studies is offered by the Department of Africology and African American Studies. This department provides students with a textured intellectual experience through the systematic Afrocentric study of the thought, behavior and practices of African people globally.

Minors are awarded only at the time of completion of the bachelor's degree and cannot be awarded either as a stand-alone program of study or after completion of the first bachelor's degree.
