About the History Minor

A History Minor is not merely about memorizing historical facts and figures, but about gaining a deeper understanding of how history continues to shape our world today. As a history minor, you will join a close-knit community of students and professors who share your passion for exploring the past and its significance. By building relationships with your peers and instructors, you will engage in lively discussions, debates, and collaborative projects. Together, we will delve into the past and uncover insights that can inspire us to make a difference in the present and future.
