The minor in History allows students to explore historical questions and issues while broadly exploring the past or pursuing a specific concentration.  In addition to gaining knowledge in specific subjects – including the history of humans and the environment, empires, race, immigration, war and society, gender and sexuality, digital history, public history, and religion across multiple continents – the minor in History trains students to use and apply the tools and methods of historical analysis.

The customizable minor consists of 21 semester credit hours, 12 of which must be taken at the upper division level, and complements a wide variety of majors in other disciplines. Majors in international studies, political science, economics, natural resources, foreign languages, literature, and philosophy will be provided with a historical understanding of social, cultural, political, and economic issues. Majors in business, mathematics, the sciences, and communication can use the minor to apply interpretive and analytical skills to evaluate and assess evidence and sources.

To declare the minor in History, please obtain a declaration form from the History Office, B356 Clark.
