The minor in History is available to students in all schools and departments. The study of history deepens our understanding of people and societies, and expands our knowledge of important issues operative in the world today. History minors will strengthen their skills in critical thinking, assessing evidence, and formulating clear and persuasive arguments both oral and written. History is essentially a laboratory of human experience, and students from a wide range of disciplines can discover new perspectives on their own intellectual interests through the study of the past.
Accumulative GPA of 2.0 or better and approval of a minor plan of study by the department’s undergraduate advisor.
20 upper division units, including a minimum of 16 upper division units from Department of History offerings. Up to 4 upper division units from outside department offerings may be included with the approval of the undergraduate advisor.
An appropriate capstone course chosen from either HIST 300 or a 400-level seminar must be included in the proposed program as part of the departmental work.
