For those who love history but do not foresee it as their major career focus, a history minor can be a rewarding option. Because of its flexibility, the history minor may also be shaped to augment a variety of majors. You and your adviser decide on a three-course concentration, and then you choose any other history courses you wish to meet the remaining requirements.
