Careers

What Can I Do with a Minor in History?

History is more than names and dates; it is the study of the human experience in all its facets-not just what happened, but how and why. If you're curious about the whys behind landmark events like the fall of Soviet Communism or Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon, the history minor can provide an interesting addition to your major.

Learn to think critically, develop research skills, and communicate more effectively. Clarify your understanding of human behavior-past, present, and future. Experience the multi-disciplinary program and be informed by voices from diverse groups, building a foundation for careers in settings like libraries, museums, and other cultural enterprises-or prepare for further academic study. Our full range of courses explores history across the continents, with traditional scholarship and contemporary focuses on race, gender, ethnicity, and environmental history.
