Post-Colonial Studies

The Minor

This interdisciplinary minor provides students with an array of cultural, historical, political, sociological, and religious viewpoints from which to understand and analyze how nations, peoples, and the environment interact.

Courses in the minor emphasize decolonized, currently colonized, and indigenous cultures within the English, French and Hispanic post-colonial worlds.

Also, students can explore other European and Asian colonizing powers. Within this wide-ranging base, students can tailor the minor to their own interests by selecting from the large number of elective courses.

Students should contact the coordinator in the English Department for more information.
