A Minor in History will provide you with the opportunity to study the many peoples and cultures whose contributions have created the world in which we live today.
The minor can be readily coupled with degrees in political science, business, sustainability studies, and many other fields. In our lower-level courses, you will begin to build the critical thinking and communication competencies necessary to succeed in upper level history courses. At the upper-level, you will undertake in-depth studies of particular areas or important themes in global development.
As a History student you will benefit from our faculty's commitment to teaching excellence and from the small class sizes at KPU. This minor may be applied towards any KPU bachelor's degree.
Students pursuing a Minor in History must be admitted to KPU for undergraduate studies.
Students pursuing this minor must declare their intention prior to graduation. A minor may only be declared as part of a bachelor’s degree.
