History Minor

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 : 18 credits

Complete the following:
HST 209 The World Since 1900 : 3 credits
HST 250 Methods, Media and The Public : 3 credits

Complete four history courses representing a range of world regions*: 12 credits
Two courses must be broad regional (100 level) courses
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.
