History Minor

With the exception of students registering as history majors, the curriculum minor in History is open to all undergraduates. It has been designed to further individual history interests of students majoring in any other academic areas. This program offers undergraduate students in the United States a basic minimal grasp of their western culture, national past, and exposure to the history of a culture which is non‐western.

Final certification of completion of requirements similarly must be made with the History Department in ample time to arrange for processing of data to have the minor recorded on a transcript prior to graduation. Effective FALL 2017.
