Appalachian Humanities and Sciences: A Holistic Approach to Regional Studies

Planning for an interdisciplinary minor in Appalachian studies.

Located in the heart of Rural Appalachia, West Virginia Wesleyan College wishes to construct a multifaceted Appalachian Studies minor program. This program will cultivate the essential avenue for Humanities and Non-Humanities disciplines to truly work in tandem towards the goal of a historical, political, cultural, social, economic and scientific assessment of a common question, "What defines Appalachia and is there truly an 'otherness' to the region?" The opportunity to pursue an Interdisciplinary minor will equip students with the tools to enhance self-awareness and contextualize the past, present and potential future of Appalachia within a national and global setting.
