History Minor

hst601

Historians record and analyze past and current events of human activity so that we can better understand the present and guide our future. Some, like biographers and genealogists, focus on the events of individuals, while others may address activities of groups, whether social, ethnic, political, religious, or geographic.

It is the historian's challenge not only to research the facts but also to present them in the spirit of the time they occurred and in the ever-changing perspective of our own time. It is a task that requires knowledge in many areas, especially the other social sciences and the humanities.

The history minor is an opportunity for you to satisfy an interest, strengthen your degree, and enhance your preparation for a career or further education.
