Requirements Prior to Fall 2011

The academic minor for those who declared prior to Fall 2011, was designed to complement particular interests and encourage a concentrated historical study with a focus of each individual’s choice. In consultation with a History advisor, students designed an individual program of SIX history courses within the following framework:

A Two-Course Survey Sequence

  • The sequence must cover a broad chronological span and is meant to provide a framework and orientation to a chosen field of study.

FOUR additional history courses

  • At least three of these must be numbered 300 or higher; the fourth can be any level.

General Rules

  • Four of the six minor courses must be taken in residence at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor or must count as in-residence credits. Relevant courses taken through CGIS
    U-M-sponsored programs abroad may be counted toward the minor.
  • Only one course may be used to satisfy requirements of both a minor and a concentration, including cognates to your concentration.
  • Courses taken for a minor may be used to satisfy LSA distribution requirements.

Please note that the History Concentration only requires TEN classes—that is, just FOUR MORE than the minor. For more information, click here.
