A program of study in history serves as a sound foundation for students who seek careers in various branches of government work; in teaching, from the public schools to the university level; in regional and local history society work, in museum work, in park administration, in archives and records management, in religion, and in business and industry.
Students seeking a minor in history will complete a minimum of 18 credit hours of history including HIS 300 , HIS 321 , HIS 324 and 3 credit hours of advanced courses in each of the following: U.S. History, African or Caribbean History, and Non-Western History. All courses are to be chosen by the student in consultation with a departmental advisor and must be passed with a grade of “C” or higher.
Prospective minors should consult a departmental advisor as early as possible. Students are required to have a graduation interview with their advisors during the final semester of study.
