Minor Program

The curricular program in African area studies is designed to complement major degrees in the applied sciences, fine arts, humanities, social sciences, and professional schools. The field of African area studies emphasizes continental Africa and embraces all of the major regions of the continent. The interdisciplinary minor in African area studies requires a minimum of six courses (18 credits); students must earn a grade of C or better in all courses counted toward the minor. Students are expected to form a core concentration of three courses in one of the following fields: humanities, African languages, African literatures, social sciences, or humans in the environment. These courses and the three remaining electives are to be drawn from the approved course lists, applied learning opportunities, and study abroad programs described below. At least three courses must be at the 300 level or above, and at least three courses must be outside the student's major. (Rutgers College students must ensure that no more than one of the courses they use for the minor is also being applied to their major.) No more than four courses may be taken in one concentration area. Students are expected to take at least 9 credits from the core concentration course fields at the New Brunswick/Piscataway campus. Students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the language learning opportunities offered through the program while bearing in mind that it is not permissible to do the minor using language credits alone.
