History Minor


The history minor places very few restrictions on students, allowing them to design a course of study that compliments their individual interests and prospective careers. A minor in history brings with it many of the advantages of a history major: such as the opportunity to broaden and deepen your knowledge of the world and improve your writing and critical thinking skills.

A minor in History is a particularly good match for students majoring in English, philosophy, anthropology, political science, sociology, international business, communication, criminal justice, women and gender studies, or African and African-American studies, or a foreign language.

Admission to the Program

Any undergraduate student can declare the minor in history.

Program Requirements

The minor in history requires 18 credits of history courses, at least nine of which must be upper-division (300/400 level). Only courses in which students earn a grade of "C" or higher satisfy these requirements. At least half of the credits must have been completed at Brockport.
