The History minor is a program in the Values and Societies Area of Study.
The History Minor
The History minor consists of 24 credits. At graduation, History minors must have a GPA of at least 2.0 in the minor. The calculation is based on all courses included in the Degree Audit. Only the most recent grade is considered for courses that have been repeated. All courses presented for the minor are normally taken on a letter-grade basis except for courses transferred in by incoming students and courses completed in study away programs. For purposes of graduation, if a student completes more than the minimum number of courses required, the higher grade(s) will be counted in the calculation of the minor grade point average, provided that the departmental distribution requirements are met.
Courses taken at secondary institutions, including Advanced Placement and International Bacallaureate courses, are not normally counted toward the minor. Exceptions must be approved by the Program coordinator.
A minor in History consists of at least 24 semester credit hours and includes one course each in European, American, and non-Western History (a total of 12 credit hours; see Major Requirements for course listings in each area); two courses (8 credit hours) at or above the 300-level; and a Junior Seminar.
AP and IB courses may not be counted towards the major’s Europena, American, and non-Western requirements.
