History Minor

Students can declare a minor in history through meeting with a History advisor or a university academic advisor (e.g., at Tykeson Hall or the Office of Academic Advising).

The current primary Advisor for Undergraduate Studies can be contacted at HistoryAdvising@uoregon.edu.

The faculty advisor helps develop a plan that directs the course of study and ensures timely completion of the requirements.

At least 20 credits—including at least 8 400-level credits—must be completed at the University of Oregon. Courses in history before 1800 and non-European or non-U.S. history require a grade of C– or better to apply toward the minor requirements. Four of the credits may be completed at the lower division.
