History: Bachelor of Arts Minor
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 areas. In our lower-level courses, you will begin to build the reading, writing, research, and analytical skills 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.
All History degree programs are reading and writing intensive. For this reason we strongly recommend that you complete the English requirements of your BA degree within your first two years at KPU.
Students pursuing a minor in History must be admitted to the Faculty of Arts.
