Minor


To complete the minor in black studies, students take one required course, BLS 101 - Introduction to Black Studies , and select an additional five courses from among program and departmental electives. Each student is required to complete one elective from each thematic track. The remaining two electives allow for and promote specialization within a particular track. It is possible that a single course might satisfy the requirement of one or more tracks. However, a course will only be counted as meeting the requirements of ONE thematic track.
