Minor in African and African Diaspora Studies

The African and African Diaspora Studies minor at Kennesaw State University offers students an interdisciplinary educational experience that fosters an understanding of the global experiences of African and African-descended peoples in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. Students gain an appreciation of the diverse character of humanity, explore the complex historical and cultural relations between Africans on the continent and African-descended peoples in the Diaspora, and engage in a comparative study of issues affecting Africans in the continent and the Diasporas.

For more information on specific classes, see our African and African Diaspora Studies minor information in the KSU Undergraduate Catalog.
