Black Feminist Studies, Minor

This interdisciplinary minor offers students opportunities to critically engage with the histories and theories that sit at the intersections of race, gender, class, and sexuality. This minor will allow students to centralize the study of Black women from diverse disciplinary perspectives and provide students with opportunities to engage comparative and transnational Black feminist studies frameworks for analyzing gender, sexuality, and other concepts within the broader disciplines of Africana and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies.
