Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: All Programs

Offered by: College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences, History Department

For those who prefer to major in another field, the Minor in History carries some of the advantages of the History Major, yet can often be accommodated without requiring any additional time at the University. A History Minor, which appears on the transcript, is tangible evidence of systematic study of mankind’s past, exposure to a wide array of related human activities, and the ability to analyze and communicate the nature of complex phenomena. For prospective employers, it often means a candidate of broader perspectives, greater cultural depth, and superior communication skills. These attainments are an important advantage in virtually all fields of endeavor  available to university graduates.

Total required for program: 32 units

Additional Requirements: 20 units

Twenty additional units in History will be selected in consultation with a History Department faculty advisor. Consideration will be given to student interests and vocational goals. Suggested groups of courses include specific world regions (ex. American history, European history, non-Western history), as well as special topics (ex. minorities in American history; modern world history; history of science, technology, and environment; etc.). The minor must include at least 12 upper division units
