History, Minor

The history minor is designed to be flexible so that students may focus on a tailored course of study. There are no prerequisites: Simply complete five history courses (20 semester hours), of which at least two must be above the 1200 level and must be taken at Northeastern. Students are encouraged to choose a cluster of courses around a particular theme, though this is not required. Existing themes include global conflict and war, ancient and early modern worlds, global cultural history, public history, commodities and capitalism, and global security. Students may also focus on particular areas such as the Americas, Europe, East Asia, and Africa.

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified.
