A student interested in establishing a history minor must take a minimum of 21 semester hours of history beyond HY 101-102 or HY 103-104 (GER) and including 12 semester hours in courses numbered 300 or above. The minor program must have the approval of the History Department chair. Appropriate history courses may also form a part of an area of cognate studies with other disciplines to support another major program. Such a program must be approved by the student’s major department and must meet the requirement of a minimum of 12 upper division semester hours, of which 9 hours must be in history. Students majoring in elementary education may select history as their second area of study. Requirements can be found in the Education section of the course catalog. Preliminary counseling is available in the Department of Education.
