A minor in history will require at least six courses for a total of 18 credit hours. A student wishing to minor in history must select courses as specified below in items 1, 2, and 3.
History minors with an Advanced Placement grade of “5” on the A.P. U.S. or European History exam will be given a one-course reduction in the required courses for the one specific area and will be given flexibility in choosing the remaining requirement in that particular area. For instance, a minor with a grade of “5” in U.S. History would be required to take one course in any area of American history. For such students the required number of history credits to be earned for the minor would be 15. History minors with an Advanced Placement grade of “5” on the A.P. World History exam will be given a one-course reduction in the number of required electives for the minor. Thus a minor with a “5” in World History would be required to complete only one elective in history.
A limit of two A.P. scores of “5” will be recognized by the department for reduction of the total number of courses in the minor.
