The Minor in History, offered by the Department of History, is an ideal complement to other majors and programs at Temple—from medicine to journalism, from computer science to finance, from film to marketing.

Minors are awarded only at the time of completion of the bachelor's degree and cannot be awarded either as a stand-alone program of study or after completion of the first bachelor's degree.
