African-American Studies at the University of Montana prepares students to speak, write, and think critically about social, cultural, and political dynamics within the African-American community. Students who take the minor are equipped for any job that demands a keen awareness of this country's racial fracture lines. Through excellent teaching and creative scholarship, faculty guide students to a deep understanding of the contributions, movements, and identities among African Americans in the U.S. and the world.
The newly named course "AAS/HSTA 141H - Black: Africa to Hip-Hop and Beyond, An introduction" (formerly Introduction to African-American Studies) now fulfills both the H (Historical and Cultural) and the X (Indigenous and Global) general education designations. Students can fulfill both requirements by taking this one course. Sign up now for Fall 2014.
Johnny Barber and Megan Jones are the co-winners of the 2014 Ulysses S. Doss African-American Studies Scholarship.
This chart tells the story of a program on the move. Since its inception in 2003, the AAS minor has grown fivefold!
