History Minor

Students in the Faculty of Arts can declare a minor in any subject or field offered by the Faculty. Arts students can complete a minor in history in the following way:

  • by earning at least 30 credits in History credits,
  • of which at least 6 credits must be at the 200 level, and
  • of which at least 18 credits must be at the 300/400 level.

Students in other faculties who wish to complete a minor in History (or a minor in any Department in the Faculty of Arts) must speak with an advisor in their home faculty.

Students can declare a History minor through the UBC Student Service Centre (specialization code 3012); no formal advising is required, but students may consult a History Department advisor to plan their program.

Please note that the minor will not be recorded on your transcript unless you indicate it on your application to graduate. For more details, read the UBC Calendar’s description of the Minor Programme in the Faculty of Arts.
