Appalachian Cultures and Environments (Pathways Minor)

College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences

The Appalachian Cultures and Environments (APCE) minor name: provides students with an understanding of the places, cultures, histories, artistic expressions, ecologies, and politics of the Appalachian region historically and currently. Courses within the minor examine the socioeconomic concerns of Southwest Virginia, and of Appalachia more broadly, and illuminate ways in which Appalachian places and issues are inextricably linked to global places and issues.
