About This Program

The Race, Gender and Social Justice graduate minor allows students to develop a global understanding of the complex inter-sectional systems of oppression that shape the lives of people of African descent, including other people of color. Students also gain specialized knowledge in the interdisciplinary field of Africana studies. In enhancing civic engagement as an interdisciplinary minor, the minor includes a focus on public policy, policy advocacy and the practice and methodology of community activism. The knowledge and skills gained through the minor prepares students for professional and academic positions.

The minor is designed for master's and doctoral students who wish to complement and strengthen their research and pedagogical framework in their degree program, as well as those who are interested in working towards equity with regard to gender, race, class, sexuality and other categories.
