The minor in Africana Studies allows students to explore the cultural, historical, and political experiences of peoples of African descent from a global perspective. In this interdisciplinary course of study, students make connections between African, African-American, and African diasporic forms and practices and gain a foundation in current theoretical perspectives on race.
The goals of the Warren Wilson College Africana Studies Program are the following:
Grades: Students must pass courses at a grade of C- or better to count toward the minor. Students must also maintain a minimum overall GPA of 2.0.
Total Credit Hours: Students must earn a minimum of 24 credit hours to fulfill the minor requirements.
*Relevant study abroad, special topics, or other courses fulfill the elective credit hours as well, as approved by the program director.
