History Minor


History is a study of the past. It's learning about families, neighborhoods, and states, and the ideas that drive them. The mission of the History minor is for students to grow in knowledge of the beauty and diversity of civilizations, and to prepare students to read critically, discuss intelligently, and write persuasively.
