The minor in history equips students with the essential skills and basic knowledge necessary to navigate the modern world as well as a career in most professions. Through the study of past events and societies, students learn to read critically, debate issues and historical context substantively, and write with clarity. From courses in Asian, African, European, Latin American, Middle Eastern, U.S. and World history, students choose three courses in one field and two courses in any field to complete the minor certification. The faculty encourages rigorous, creative thinking about the past.
