The College of Arts and Humanities is excited to offer students the opportunity to choose two, new, interdisciplinary minors when selecting an area to complement their major. These minors are housed in the Department of History and Foreign Languages, which also houses the interdisciplinary Gender Studies minor.
Students interested in Asian culture and history may opt to minor in Asian Studies. This minor requires a total of eighteen hours. In addition to the World History sequence, Asian Studies minors take four courses focused on Asia. Course selections include art, history, film, or political science.
