Africana Studies, Minor
A minor in Africana Studies allows students to gain knowledge and perspectives on cultures and peoples of Africa and the African diaspora, including African Americans, through study of multiple subject areas and methodological approaches. The African diaspora refers to people of African origin living outside the continent of Africa. Students craft an area of study, drawing on at least three disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities, to examine developments related to African and African diaspora communities, while gaining communication, analytic, and research skills.
A minimum of 18 credits is required for the Africana Studies minor from at least three different disciplines, with no more than 9 credits in one discipline and a minimum of 6 credits at the 300 level or higher. Half of the required courses must be taken at Georgian Court University. Courses can be chosen from the list of approved Africana Studies courses listed below, or students may apply to the chair of the Department of Criminal Justice, Anthropology, Sociology, and Human Rights for approval of a course that is not listed. Courses in the minor may also be used to meet applicable requirements in General Education or in the student’s major(s) or minor(s), subject to rules of those major(s) and minor(s). Multiethnic Studies minor students may not count more than 6 credits for both the Multiethnic Studies minor and the Africana Studies minor.
