Hip-Hop fans can now take their love of rap music and turn it into a minor degree! The University Of Arizona has offered courses in hip-hop over the past 8 years, and now they’re taking it one step further, being the first University to give students a chance to earn a minor in hip-hop.

The University of Arizona has recently added the concentration to its Africana Studies minor program. The decision comes as part of a trend to give serious academic study to the subject. I suppose if you wanted to be in the music industry and venture into films, blogs, magazines etc., this would give you an edge over someone who didn’t study hip-hop.

Do you think this will be a trend that picks up across the nation? When you think of hip-hop you think of New York where it all began. Would getting a minor in hip-hop be something you would pursue?
