    Students may complete a minor in African-American studies by taking six courses including the core course, Introduction to African-American Studies 3100 (cross-listed as either ENG 3100 or PHIL 3100). Students should work with an advisor to plan their courses. Only one of the courses can be a 1000-level course.

    Other African-American studies courses offered at Hamline and through the ACTC may be applied to the minor with approval from the program director.

    All students seeking majors and minors leading to professions relating to law, public policy, nonprofit organizations, journalism, urban policy, social justice, conflict resolution, and education can enhance their program with this minor.
