The discipline of Africana Studies promotes academic excellence and social awareness, preparing students to contribute to their communities’ cultural, aesthetic, and economic environments. Auburn University's Africana Studies Minor offers undergraduates an opportunity to devote part of their course work to an interdisciplinary curriculum that draws from electives in the sciences, humanities, social sciences, and the arts. Brochure

Housed in the College of Liberal Arts (CLA), Africana Studies contributes to the University's mission to generate and disseminate knowledge about people and peoples of African origin. Teaching and research in the program focus on Continental Africans and the African Diaspora, especially with regard to the United States and other nations of the Americas. Like all CLA majors and minors, Africana Studies prepares students to successfully encounter complexity, diversity, and change, competencies that employers want. Students entering the workplace will find an Africana Studies minor opens doors for many professions including education at all levels, counseling, public planning, and international relations. Students planning careers with non-governmental organizations in Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America or with corporate America will also find much benefit in the course work offered by minoring in Africana Studies.
