History Minor Requirements

The History Minor consists of 18-21 units of upper-division history courses. Students will choose six upper-division courses from the three fields (U.S., European, and World Regions). Students may take HIST 100W as one of the six courses, but in order to do so they must take the prerequisite of HIST 4. Therefore, students who take HIST 100W will take a total of seven classes for the minor. History minors are not permitted to take history courses by CR/NC grading.

Note: The History Minor also requires a 2.0 GPA and 6 upper-division units in residence.


The Department of History has more than 15 faculty members offering a wide variety of courses in the history of Europe, the United States, Latin America, the British Empire, Africa, the Middle East, and the Far East, as well as courses in intellectual and cultural history, social history, military history, and the history of women.
