Why Choose the History Minor?

In this age of 'informational overload,' the history minor helps students to deal with information from many different sources, to sort out the 'big picture' from the short-term details, and to recognize the decisions and events that will have lasting impact on their business and community. The history minor allows students to study traditional topics in history (e.g., military history) as well as topics that may have particular interest to them personally or professionally (e.g., history of technology, business, health care, or sport; women's history; African-American history).
