History Minor

Every art, science and technique has a history. Learn more about the one that drives you.

The research skills and intellectual habits you'll develop by studying history can enhance your success, no matter your major. And take advantage of this opportunity to explore the history of your own field.

History majors are not eligible for this minor.
