Media, History, and Culture Minor

Advisor: Kristine McCusker

The minor in Media, History, and Culture consists of 18 hours. Two core history courses selected from HIST 3050 HIST 3180 , HIST 3870 , HIST 4045 , HIST 4070 , or HIST 4740  are required. Liberal Arts majors must take JOUR 1020 /EMC 1020  in place of one of the core history courses. Majors from colleges other than Liberal Arts must select their four electives from College of Liberal Arts courses. No more than two courses may be taken for minor credit from any one department.

Interdisciplinary Minors

Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
