well as the methods of historical study. Students pursuing the history minor are encouraged to follow their interests by either 1) obtaining broad knowledge of the past by studying various world cultures or 2) by focusing on the study of a particular region or period.
I chose to minor in history because I had credits from high school that could be applied here and I just really love the subject. The biggest skill/benefit from having a history minor is learning to apply concepts to the past. Being an Economics and Finance major, much of the material learned in a contemporary American history class can be applied to economic and financial situations. I also think the amount of writing required in most history classes benefited me as a writer in my other courses at Saint Anselm. It definitely was great to have some diversity in my schedule as well and be able to study something much different than what you would find in an Economics/Finance course. My experience with the history department was great. Challenging, yet completely useful!
