Students majoring in disciplines other than history may elect a minor in history. Students find that a minor in history enhances their opportunities for employment, law school or graduate school chances.
The Department of History has recently revised its minor. Students who entered under the old minor prior to fall 2009 and have earned no more than 9 credits have the option of either completing the original requirements in effect when they first declared their minor, or fulfilling the new requirements as outlined below.
Program Requirements as of Fall 2009
- At least 18 credits in history with at least one course in non-European, non-United States history
- No more than 6 credits at the HIST 1000 level
- At least 12 credits at the HIST 2000 level or above
