The Interdisciplinary Minor in Public History allows students to examine the ways the historic method is applied outside of the classroom. For students seeking a career in public history, the minor will better prepare them for advanced study in specialized programs. In addition to history courses, the student can explore related disciplines such as marketing, management, or advertising. Students in this minor should see the public history advisor in the Department of History.

As students select courses to meet the requirements for the university Core of Common Studies (UCCS), they should pay close attention to the list of recommended for this minor. Prerequisites for enrolling in the minor are HIST 1101; or HIST 2101 and 2102. Recommended courses that satisfy the UCCS requirements include ANTH 1001; COMM 1100 or ENGL 1002; ECON 2003; and a statistics course (MANA 2028; MATH 1700; PSYC 2001; SOCI 2060)
