The department also offers a major (B.A.) in Cultural Studies and minors in Black World Studies, Cultural Studies, Latino and Latin American Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies.
The Department of Humanities, History, and Social Sciences (HHSS) at Columbia College Chicago invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in the Atlantic World, with a special emphasis on African and Caribbean history, beginning in Fall 2013.

The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability and willingness to work collaboratively within a multidisciplinary department and with a wide range of students, staff, and fellow faculty.
