History Education Minor

Secondary Education Minor

Educating others about our heritage

A history education minor provides you with broad-based knowledge in a variety of historical topics, including world, U.S. and global history. Through elective courses, you can tailor this 24-hour minor to complement your major program of study.

Please note that the history education minor is a non-certifiable program. If you want to be fully certified to teach history or social sciences in public high schools, consider pursuing a major in history education.
