No 400-level courses are required, as these are our senior research capstones, but any minor is welcome to take a 400-level class should they choose to do so.

Declared minors in history may apply for research and conference travel funds from the Gruber and Drew funds within the department; funding is dependent, of course, upon availability of funds.
