All students completing a standard 36 credit major are required to complete a 24 credit minor.
History majors in the College of Arts and Sciences typically choose from a wide variety of minors. Some choose minors related to their major, such as ancient studies or American Indian studies. Others choose minors with a more professional focus, such as broadcast journalism. Which minor you choose is entirely up to you. Some history majors also create topical minors. This option allows students to pursue areas of study that are not currently represented by minors at UW-Eau Claire. To learn more about the minors mentioned here and others, consult the UW-Eau Claire Catalogue and your faculty adviser.
If you are in the College of Education and Human Sciences, you should complete a certifiable teaching minor UNLESS you are completing a comprehensive major such as broad field social studies.
Some students complete additional minors or majors. If you are thinking about doing this, you should meet with your faculty adviser to discuss the pros and cons.
