The History Minor

Declaring Your Minor

To formally declare as a history minor, fill out that portion of the Declaration of Academic Major form and file it with your major department. Then the history minor will show up on your DARS report and transcript. The history minor requires 18 credits, at least nine of which must be upper level (300 or 400). Only courses in which you receive at least a C (2.0) will count, and at least nine credits must be completed at SUNY Brockport.
