The history minor is composed of six courses:

  • ˆAt least two seminars at the 300 level (one of which may be HIST 300)ˆ
  • Four electives, of which only two may be at the 100 level

Students must demonstrate competence in the historian’s craft by satisfactorily completing a major research paper based on both primary and secondary sources. This is normally completed in the 300-level seminars.

Students wishing to minor in history normally must declare their intention by the second semester of their junior year. Normally all courses must be taken at Trinity. Only courses in which the student has received a grade of at least C- can count toward the minor in history.

The adviser of the history minor is the chair of the History Department.
