Requirements for a Minor in African and African American Studies
Students seeking a minor in African and African American Studies are required to complete 21 to 22 credit hours. Students will be required to choose between two tracks: track 1 (Africa) and track 2 (African American).
All minors will be required to complete two core courses (6 credits)
New African or African American related courses in each of the two tracks may count toward the minor as they become available. Please consult the program director concerning the eligibility of any particular course. Students should be particularly alert to the presence of courses offered through the vehicle of special topics courses (AAA 380 and 390).
Transfer credits from approved study abroad programs and from other US colleges and universities may be counted toward the minor upon verification by the program director. However, of the 21-22 credits required, a minimum of six credits must be taken in residence at GVSU.
