History Minors gain a deeper understanding of U.S. history and World history, choosing from courses examining a wide variety of regions, historical periods and themes. They also take a methods class providing training in historical research and they do original research in an upper-level seminar. A Minor in History will build enhanced skills that pair well with a wide variety of pre-professional majors and liberal arts majors.
