Students who wish to take a minor in Afro-American Studies must complete a minimum of 5 courses in the Du Bois Department. All courses offered in the department count toward the minor, except for independent studies. Courses taught in other Five College departments and programs may count toward the minor as well. Students must check with the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) or Departmental Administrator before enrolling in such courses. Independent Studies can occassonally count toward the minor, but they must be approved by the DUS or departmental administrator.
