Minor Requirements

"WHY NOT MINOR IN HISTORY?"


Do you like History and do well in History courses you've taken (in High School and at WPU)?

Have you thought of adding a History Minor to your major?

History has a clear subject-matter relationship to Political Science, Literature, Philosophy, Music, and Art; it would make a valuable contribution to majors in those subjects. It would be of practical value to majors in Communication (especially for careers in broadcast and print journalism), or Accounting (business firms are especially interested in students with the research and analytical skills that History courses foster).

Did you know that membership in the History Honor Society--Phi Alpha Theta--is open to qualified students, even if they are not History majors?

Wouldn't your diploma be enhanced with a minor in History, which might also include membership in Phi Alpha Theta?
