Minor in History at UWL

The perspective, context, and knowledge that can be gained from the study of history can be an excellent addition to a wide variety of majors from across the entire campus.  Combined with the research and writing skills of the study of history, historical knowledge can help situate studies in the sciences, business, economics, medicine, and the arts.

There are three different minors available in the History Department: the History minor (18 credits), the EAA History Education minor (19 Credits) and the MCEA History Education minor (18 credits.)
