Applied History Minor (L)

The Applied History minor gives students the opportunity to gain knowledge and acquire skills that will enable them to pursue careers in a variety of professions related to the practice of history. Museums, archives, historical sites, public and private agencies, and businesses are all seeking students with the knowledge and skills derived from the Applied History minor. This 15-credit hour minor has a foundation of course work in history, based on the department’s Public History and Digital Archives courses and includes the possibility of credit for internships in history. The remainder of course work is composed of electives, mostly from outside the department of history, enabling students to gain ancillary skills. These electives will enable students to focus either on aspects of public history or on the rapidly growing field of digital history.
