20 credits

The History minor exposes students to historical thinking and content at introductory and advanced levels. The minor can augment other majors by providing an appreciation of historical contexts and of how historical forces have shaped the contemporary world. The minor will also improve students’ skills in writing, critical thinking, and the close reading of primary and secondary sources.

Minor Requirements

At least 12 credits must be at the 300-level or above.

Students may count one approved relevant course (of any level) from outside the History Department offerings toward the History minor. Such courses must be approved by the chair of the History Department.
