Minor in History

The minor in history is a great complement to all other majors. To minor in history, students must successfully complete 18 credit hours above the general education requirements. They must take HHIS 215 or HHIS 216, HHIS 221 or HHIS 222, two related courses in global history, at least one 300- or 400-level history course, and one elective history course. The precise sequence of courses will be mapped out by the student in consultation with their minor field advisor or the chair of the department.
