Students majoring in another discipline—whether in the STEM field, social sciences, or the humanities—may want to round out their studies and sharpen their skills by adding an undergraduate minor in history. For the current semester's offerings, view Department of History courses (prefix HIST) on MyUI.

To earn the undergraduate minor in history, students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor. Coursework in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.

The following coursework is required:

  • a minimum of 15 s.h. in history courses (prefix HIST), including 12 s.h. earned in courses numbered 2000 or above; and
  • at least 12 s.h. earned in courses taken at the University of Iowa.
