What Can I Do With A Minor In African American Studies?

African-American Studies at the University of Montana prepares students to speak, write, and think critically about social, cultural, and political dynamics within the African-American community. Students who take the minor are equipped for any job that demands a keen awareness of this country’s racial fracture lines. African-American Studies minors go on to careers in government, law, teaching, non-profit relief, social advocacy, research, and international development.
