Minor in History

We cordially invite you to combine the academic major of your choice with a History Minor.  While enabling you to pursue many fascinating topics, the History Minor also will deepen your understanding of different people and cultures to help you become the kind of citizen that your country—and the world—needs today.

On a more practical level, CCSJ’s History Minor curriculum will strengthen your critical thinking, research, and communication skills.  Employers in fields from business to law to education place great value on these skills and know how integral they are to historians’ training.  If you care about the subject and make it a priority to do well, it’s hard to go wrong with a CCSJ History Minor!
