Welcome to Arkansas State University!



College: College of Liberal Arts

Department: History


Everything has a history. Religion, science, technology, economics, politics, literature, ethnicity, race, class, gender, society, communications, music, architecture, etc. -- the list encompasses all the categories that have been devised for the placement of human knowledge. No matter what your interests are and what your major is, they have a history. What follows are some suggestions about how you could cluster courses in such a way as to create a history minor based on a particular theme. The History Department does not require that you choose any of these "clusters" in order to minor in history or that you should cluster your courses at all. There is nothing wrong (and there can be much to gain) by choosing courses based entirely on the quality of the teaching as you perceive it, regardless of subject. A brilliant teacher can make anything interesting, and you are here to have your mind not only filled, but stretched.
