History Minor Requirements

The Department offers a minor in history, a useful skill-set enhancement for many majors, including literature, business, political science, sociology, anthropology, science, and economics.

The history minor requires 15 credit hours.

Select one of the following courses:

  • HIST 2400 The American Military Experience
  • HIST 2500 Explorations in History
  • HIST 2630 Historical Methods

Take an additional 4 HIST courses (3 hours each, for a total of 12 hours) at the 3000-5000 level.

Upper-level history courses do not have prerequisites, so students pursuing the minor may take whatever upper-level courses they choose to satisfy the 12 hour upper-level course requirement.

Be sure to declare history as your minor with the Registrar’s Office.
