Students who wish to take several history courses may want to consider becoming either a history major or minor. In general, the major requires a more in-depth commitment from students, whereas the minor offers students an opportunity for some specialization in history without all the obligations of the major.
For those students already pursuing a major in another field, a history minor might be the more viable option, because the minor requires the completion of fewer overall history courses.
2000-level HIST courses are applicable to the minor. 4000-level courses may be used to fulfill both upper-division credit hours and geographic area credit hours.
HIST 3020 and all 3000-level Senior Seminars are restricted to history majors. 3000-level courses may occasionally be taken by minors if the course is not full as of the second week of drop-add and/or you have written permission from the instructor.
All coursework applied to the minor must be completed with a grade of C- or better. No pass/fail work may be applied. The GPA for all minor coursework must equal 2.00 or higher.
