History, Minor

History illuminates every aspect of the human experience—politics, economics, religion, social issues, culture, and war—shaping our memories and equipping us to think critically and constructively about connections between past and present. Its breadth makes it particularly well suited to complement other degree programs in the Humanities and Social Sciences, as well as allow all students to explore how the past impacts their interests and areas of study. The History Minor emphasizes a flexible course of study, with two survey classes and four upper division electives that challenge students to read and write about specific subjects and places in more depth.
