Welcome to the African American Studies Program


The African American Studies Program offers a minor for undergraduate students enrolled at UTSA.  The mission of the African American Studies program is to promote academic and professional excellence through the enhancement of cultural competency skills, enrichment of theoretical knowledge, and advancement of critical thinking related to multiple facets of the African American experience and the African Diaspora.


African American Studies (AAS) both complements and adds cultural diversity value to all fields of study and professions.  The program also prepares undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate education.  Additionally, students engaging in this program gain insights into working in a variety of professions such as education, business, law, public policy, health care, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields.
