Minor in History

Webster University's History program allows you to be familiar with the outlines of the history of the modern world since 1500. You'll gain an in-depth knowledge of a geographic area or historical epoch, and you will be able to make historical arguments using concrete illustrations and examples.

You'll also master critical analysis skills that will give you the ability to analyze a situation and come up with creative and practical solutions. And research skills that will help you understand past practices and trace the roots of any issue. Interdisciplinary thinking and training practiced during your study will enable you to think about a problem in many ways, analyze it using many tools, and provide solutions drawn from different traditions of thought.

The following apply to all minors:

  • A minor must be comprised of 18 credit hours taken at Webster University.
  • No course counted toward a major can also count toward a minor.
  • Students may have a major and a minor within the same department; they may not major and minor within the same area of emphasis.
  • Students must earn a grade of C- or better in any course they wish to apply toward a minor.
