Declaring a Minor in African American and Africana Studies (AAS)
By completing 21 hours of course work students can earn a minor in African American and Africana Studies. This minor offers a cultural, historical, and literary base that can strengthen any major in the Humanities or the Social Sciences. The African American and Africana Studies Program seeks to promote the interest and knowledge of the African diaspora experience through quality teaching and research. Multidisciplinary in scope, AAAS offers a selection of courses in English, History, Geography, Political Science, Sociology, Philosophy, Religion, and Language. Courses affiliated with the Program are listed each Fall and Spring semester on our website and in the University Schedule of Classes under the AAS prefix.
- Students planning on declaring a minor need to make the request to declare the minor in your primary college even if your major is in another college and the minor you want is an A&S minor. If your primary college is A&S (you are majoring in an A&S department) and you want to declare a minor in AAAS, please come to Patterson Office Tower 202 to fill out the declaration of minor form.
- Once you complete the declaration of minor form, please have your advisor sign the form and then submit it to the AAAS office in 112 Breckinridge Hall. Please make sure to submit this form to the AAAS office so we have record that you are declaring the minor.
