History Minor

Return to: Registered Degree and Certificate Programs


History is the study of human life recreated from the tracks our ancestors have left behind. The study of history in today’s world equips students with analytical skills and research techniques of great practical value in both educational and career settings. The program is designed both to acquaint students with different ages, societies and cultures, and to develop their strengths in writing and thinking.

In organizing the curriculum, care has been taken to provide students with a broad general knowledge of history and to provide a firm foundation for graduate school or careers in business, government service, law and teaching. Practice and theory are linked through internships in historical societies and at historical sites.

Students who minor in history must take 18 credits. Three may be in political science and at least nine of the remaining credits must be in courses numbered 3000 or 4000.
