History Minor

Complement your degree with a history minor

History Minor

History begins with curiosity about the past, and there are many ways to turn that curiosity into a successful career. The major emphasizes critical thinking, research, writing skills, and working with primary and secondary sources. A wide range of employers highly value these analytical skills. We also have an M.A. degree, along with certificate programs for licensed teachers and for students wishing to study Public History. In addition, we have two joint degree programs with the School of Library and Information Management. Learn the requirements by viewing the complete degree requirements.

So many possibilities

ESU History alumni are currently working in museums, archives, interpretive centers, education, university and public administration and libraries.
