History Minor

The minor in history encourages students majoring in other fields to study history and to organize their historical studies in a coherent way. The structure of the minor requires students to gain both depth and breadth in history. Students must select a concentration, which enables them to acquire significant knowledge of one area of the world, and take courses outside the concentration, which encourages an understanding of diverse cultural contexts.
