The Black Studies minor at Cabrini College evolved out of the mission of the college to “welcomes learners of all faiths, cultures, and backgrounds,” and it is a response to student requests for coursework on the African Diaspora.
This minor expands the College’s capacity to offer a more inclusive curriculum that connects with the intellectual and cultural heritage of people of African descent.
Advising and coordination of the minor are housed in the History and Political Science Department.
In this minor, the study of the traditions and experiences of Africans in the New and Old Worlds is rooted in the social sciences, art, literature, and the humanities. The minor will emphasize international and cross-cultural perspectives.
