History Minor

Return to: Academic Programs

The History minor is designed to give students an overview of recent world history, an introduction to history as a way to understand human development, and a sampling of historical experiences in selected regions and time periods.

Requirements for Minor in History

HST 209 The World Since 1900 : 3 Credits
HST 250 Methods, Media and The Public : 3 Credits

With advisement, select 4 history courses representing a range of world regions: 12 Credits
Two of these must be broad regional (100 level) courses, and two must be more topically-focused (200-300 level) courses. This selection of courses should be made on the basis of two main criteria: 1) supplementing the student’s major with relevant historical knowledge; 2) gaining an appreciating for the globalism and diversity of historical experience.

Total credit hours required: 18 

Minor Policy

Minors may be declared any time before the completion of the drop/add period in the first term of the senior year or before completion of 87 credit hours, whichever comes later.

Successful completion of at least a one course in the minor is a prerequisite to such declaration.

Only two of the required minor courses may also count toward major or another minor’s requirements.  A minimum of half the required credits for the minor must be completed at Sage.

GPA in Minor required (minimum): 2.200 or higher
