History is a discipline that constantly adopts new techniques of analysis and new ways of gathering and presenting information. Students of history learn to use and create digital media, to perform quantitative as well as qualitative analysis, and to present their findings in compelling ways to all kinds of audiences. Students who pursue the minor in history study the growth and development of human society from all aspects political, social, economic and cultural.
The College of Liberal Arts and Science covers the history of Europe, the U.S., Asia, Latin America and Africa, and courses are designed to give students both breadth and depth in understanding today's complex world. History majors are in demand. They know how to find and evaluate evidence, form arguments and present analysis --- skills essential to most careers including law, business, education, medicine and government. Please note, students may only apply to a minor in combination with an existing degree program. Please speak with your academic advisor to ensure this minor is applicable with your major.
