History Minor

History Department
College of Liberal Arts
  • Program Type: Undergraduate minor related to major
  • Requirements for this program are current for Spring 2018
  • Required credits in this minor: 14
A history minor is an excellent complement to every major. Students from a range of departments, especially political science, economics, sociology, psychology, global studies, journalism, education, biology, chemical engineering, and foreign languages, frequently minor in history. At this critical moment, there are no minors more important to understanding the past, navigating the present, or imagining the future than History. History minors make sense of the world through the study of ancient times, the recent past, and everything in between. Asking interesting questions about the past and examining a range of oral, written, visual, and material sources, history minors explore and explain how peoples across time and space have lived, loved, built community, warred, reconciled and made sense of their worlds. As much as history is a window into the past, it also helps us understand ourselves, our identities, and how we have come to inhabit the moral, ethical, social, economic, political, religious, environmental, national, ethnic, racial, gender, and sexual communities we live in today. History helps us understand how our present and possible futures grow out of a very usable and interesting past. History minors develop all of the skills required to thrive in today’s world from an understanding of the engines of change and an ability to assess and interpret conflicting evidence and interpretations to the robust oral and written communication skills that will allow you to shape conversations in your chosen professions and communities. Regardless of your career path, a history minor will enable you to bring fresh and critical historical perspectives to the communities you live and work in. Historical thinking strengthen communities by encouraging them to think deeply about where they have come from and where they would like to go. This is a critical moment and an incredible time to declare a history minor.

Course Equivalencies: 02074
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Periodic Fall & Spring
This writing-intensive course examines the racial history of modern America to learn from and engage with what historians enmeshed in ethnic studies do. These historians examine the systematic and coordinated exercises of power called race in the American past and make legible how racially aggrieved groups responded to this shaping power. Thus, throughout, we ask, "What did racial subjects do with what was done to them by the American system forged out of settler colonialism, slavery, racism, and other forms of injustice, exclusion, and violence?" This question issues an intellectual challenge to do all that needs to be done to capture community life, the politics of difference, and the dynamism of social identities in all their richness, fullness, and complexity. In other words, we study and write about the racial history of modern America, including its ugly past and arc of justice, to consider what it would take to transcend this racial past.

This writing-intensive course examines the racial history of modern America.

We are interested in studying how these diverse groups experienced racialization not in the same way but in various and distinct ways in relation to each other.
