Southern Studies

The Southern Studies Minor immerses students in diverse perspectives on the American South. The minor incorporates a range of disciplines and courses that respond to the region's notably complex history: Native settlements and European colonization, chattel slavery, the Civil War and Reconstruction, Jim Crow legislation and Civil Rights Movement, urban-industrial development and suburbanization, global capital and digital media.
