Michael Riley is an African American Studies minor.
The African-American Studies program at Hamline University provides students with an opportunity to explore in-depth the historical, social, and cultural context that frames this area of study.
Faculty from various disciplines at Hamline and other ACTC schools enable students to complete a minor in African-American studies.
The core course is humanities-focused and prepares students with critical thinking, close textual reading and analysis, and writing skills. However, the interdisciplinary nature of this area is integrated through requirements emphasizing both humanistic and social scientific perspectives.African-American studies program director: Samuel Imbo, philosophy department.
