The African American Studies Minor
The African American studies minor at The Citadel consists of five courses or 15 credit hours. Introduction to African American studies is a required course. Students are also required to take two electives in core courses in African American literature, African American history and the modern civil rights movement. And the final two electives may come from a broader cluster of courses that includes offerings such as cultural anthropology, Southern literature, African affairs and minority group psychology.
The program also includes a community outreach initiative that serves as a conduit for student, faculty and staff involvement with the surrounding area. Community meetings, lectures, conferences and workshops are being planned to promote dialogue between The Citadel and the community and to enhance the school’s visibility.
