Undergraduate Programs
Minor in History

The Minor in History, which is administered by the Department of History, provides foundational skills needed for the study of history, breadth of historical knowledge, and advanced study of one or more historical topics. Students obtain research, reasoning and writing skills that form the core of historical study and develop capacities to integrate knowledge from diverse historical subfields based on this common set of skills.

The minor is available as an elective to students enrolled in bachelor’s degree programs at Michigan State University other than the Bachelor of Arts degree in History, History Education, or Global History. With the approval of the department and college that administer the student’s degree program, the courses that are used to satisfy the minor may also be used to satisfy the requirements for the bachelor’s degree.

Students who plan to apply to the program should consult the undergraduate advisor in the Department of History.
