History (Minor)

About the Program

Students may choose one of two alternatives in the History minor: American History or European History. A History minor can help students understand how historians find evidence about the ways people once lived, and create meaningful interpretations of the past that are relevant to modern life. Seeing how individuals in the past made choices that impact us today, students can better understand how such choices contribute to change, now and in the future. A minor in the study of history can be of great value in a career because students learn to conduct research, write well, and think critically.
