(18-21 credits)

The History Department offers a minor designed both to give students a substantial grasp of the discipline and to broaden the intellectual range associated with other majors. Six courses are required, with the following distribution:

  • At least three (3) courses must be at the 300-level overall.
  • No more than two (2) courses (totaling six to eight credits) are transferable from another institution.
  • No more than two (2) New Paltz courses may be taken outside the History Department, and only with the prior permission of the department chair.
