• History (Minor)

  • Overview

    The History minor is offered through Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts.

    Lang's History program offers a dynamic approach to engagement with the past. Students are trained in historical research and approach history critically using multidisciplinary tools. Learn more about the History program.

    Curriculum

    The minor in History requires the completion of the following five (5) courses:*

    • Two introductory LHIS courses. With advance approval, these requirements can be fulfilled by a First-Year Seminar and/or ULEC courses taught by history instructors.
    • Two additional LHIS courses. At least one must be at the 3000 level or higher. One of the courses can be in another college or another Lang program, provided it has historical context and is approved by the program advisor. One of the courses must be either
      • LHIS 2016 Doing History or
      • LHIS 3001 Uses of the Past
    • One thematically related course from outside of the History program (non-LHIS)

    * Two of the history courses and the non-history course must constitute a thematic cluster, as determined in consultation with the department advisor.

    Students must receive a grade of C or better in all courses to fulfill the minor.
