A student in the African American Studies program. The African American Studies minor is a valuable addition to almost any major. It examines African life and culture, both on the African continent and in the US. Unlike most African American Studies programs in the humanities and social sciences, UAB's program lets you explore a much wider range of the African American experience in areas like medicine, nursing, public health, dentistry, business, and engineering. This understanding of multiculturalism is valued by employers in industries such as education, government, and business.
