Requirements for the Minor in History

For the History Minor, the History Department encourages students to select courses that contribute to their major field of study and that support their individual interests and career goals.

Students may choose from any two lower-division courses (1000-2000 level) and any five upper-division courses (300-400 level).

History minors are should also consider taking our capstone seminars, HIST 491 (Historiography), and/or HIST 492 (Senior Seminar; topic varies by professor) 

In addition, in consultation with a professor, history minors may also enroll in History 496 (Independent Study), which gives them the opportunity to investigate a subject of their own choice, reading and holding discussions on an individual basis with the professor.
