History - Minor

A minor is also offered by the Department of History. All majors are welcome as History minors. History is, in fact, the ideal complement to virtually any course of study at Texas A&M. Students in the sciences and engineering, for example, would greatly benefit by using a History minor to help sharpen their writing and critical thinking skills. Employers consistently cite an inability to write and reason as their chief complaints about prospective hires. History minors receive valuable training in precisely those things. Other students interested in graduate or professional programs such as law school or social work also stand to benefit from a historical perspective on the issues and problems that matter to our nation and world today. A minor in History therefore helps to broaden one’s education and enhance a student’s competitiveness on the job market.

The Minor in History requires a minimum of 15 hours of coursework. To add a History Minor, a student must make a request through their Major Advisor.
