History Minor Requirements

The History minor requires satisfactory completion of 28 units as follows:

Lower Division:
At least one World History course (4 units) and at least one other lower-division course (4 units).

Upper Division:
At least four upper-division courses (16 units) in History. The department recommends that minors address the diversity of human historical experiences by including courses in at least two historical fields, regions, or eras.

Elective History Course:
One additional History course (4 units). Lower-division courses taken elsewhere may be counted toward the lower-division requirement; up to four advanced placement units earned in high school may count toward its fulfillment as well. Please consult with the academic advisors for further details.

Students undertaking a minor in History are urged to consult with the academic advisors for quarterly advising and meet with the undergraduate advisor at least once a year.
