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 humankind’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.

Minor Electives: 15 units


15 additional units in History, 9 of which must be upper division.

Suggested groups of courses include specific world regions (e.g. U.S. history, European history, world history), as well as special topics.
