What Can I Do with a Minor in History?
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.
A minor is earned in conjunction with a bachelor's degree.
To receive a minor (18 to 24 units) at Northern Arizona University, you must complete a planned group of courses from one or more subject matter areas with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. At least 12 units of the minor must be unique to that minor and not applied to any other minor.
In addition to University Requirements:
- Complete individual plan requirements.
Please note that you may be able to use some courses to meet more than one requirement. Contact your advisor for details.
