Undergraduate History Minor Requirements
An undergraduate minor in History consists of a minimum of 6 courses totaling not less than 18 credits and distributed among lower and upper-level courses in the following manner:
A. No more than two introductory courses (100 level)
and
B. At least four upper-level courses (200 and above)

For a total of six history courses



Additional Guidelines:


  1. Transfer credit toward the minor will be granted for introductory courses only.




  1. The four upper-level courses must be taken through the University of Massachusetts Amherst History Department or from a history department at one of the Four Colleges: Amherst, Hampshire, Mt. Holyoke, or Smith. Exception: One such course may be taken during a Study Abroad semester.




  1. No History course taken on a pass/fail basis or in which a grade of D+ or lower has been earned may count toward the minor.




  1. "History" courses taken outside the History Department [e.g., Econ. 306, 361, 362; Journalism 320; Phil. 320, 321; Sport Mgt. 202] do not count under Rule 2 above.


Procedures:
A student wishing to declare a minor in History must, during his/her final semester at UMass, bring the Director of Undergraduate Studies (611-613 Herter) a copy of his/her unofficial transcript showing the completion of the required six History courses and a copy of the “Declaration of Academic Minor” form available from the Registrar’s office. The Director of Undergraduate Studies will submit the completed form to the Registrar and the minor will be recorded on the student’s official record. Caution: Students may not declare a minor after they have graduated, even if they have fulfilled the minor requirements. MINORS MUST BE DECLARED BEFORE GRADUATION.
Advising:
Students planning to declare a History minor are urged to discuss their program with the Director of Undergraduate Studies (611 – 613 Herter Hall) or a member of the History Department Advising Committee.
