This chart (click here) tells the story of a program on the move. Since its inception in 2003, the AAS minor has grown fivefold!
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.
