An understanding of the past is essential to shaping the present and future of our nation and the world. History majors and minors are asked not to memorize facts, but to develop the reading, writing, and research skills necessary to understand the past and face the future. The undergraduate program leading to a B.A. in history provides rigorous training in research, analysis, and writing. Because students of history learn to evaluate evidence, write well, and think clearly, studying history is excellent training for almost any career.

Minor in History

A new set of requirements will apply to all students matriculating in or after Fall 2016. Please contact The History Department (history@maxwell.syr.edu) for these new requirements.

Requirements for students who matriculated before Fall 2016: To complete a minor in history, students take 18 credits of history, including: 6 credits in lower-division and 6 credits in upper-division courses (300 or higher), all in a single concentration (U.S., European, or Global). Minors must also take one upper-division course outside their concentration and HST 401 .
