Minor in Appalachian Studies
The Appalachian Studies minor program is a multidisciplinary program designed to provide students with an understanding of the culture, economy, history, natural resources, and politics of the Appalachian region and how these concepts impact and influence current Appalachian communities and their residents.
Students enrolled in the minor will participate in community-based research, civic engagement, and service-learning projects. Applied knowledge and critical thinking skills will serve students beyond the Appalachian and college setting, as they navigate within the community, the state, the nation, and the world.
