Mission Statement

The interdisciplinary minor in African Diaspora Studies (ADS) provides undergraduates with the learning environment and the tools to deepen their knowledge about the history, art and culture of people of African descent. From the local Gullah communities to the worldwide African diaspora, this field of study seeks to provide a scholarly approach to understanding the lives of black people wherever they are located across the globe. Students in the minor will develop multifaceted analytical tools of inquiry for human engagement and informed citizenship; therefore, the minor complements almost every major. The minor consists of 18 credit hours of coursework drawn from at least three disciplines and up to six disciplines.
