The minor in Southern Studies provides an interdisciplinary study of the southern United States and its history, culture, and significance. Students in the minor will gain a fuller understanding of the ways in which the region has been interpreted and continues to be interpreted. The minor showcases the College’s rich curriculum of courses that approach the study of the South from multiple disciplines and also from local, national, and international perspectives. Because the minor draws from courses in nearly two dozen majors and programs at the College, it is an excellent complement to almost any program of study. Students who minor in Southern Studies will be well prepared for graduate programs and careers that require strong research, writing, and critical thinking skills.
