Arranging Non-Traditional Minor Fields
It is possible to construct a non-traditional, thematic minor (i.e., not Modern Europe, Medieval, etc.). But this needs to be worked out with care. You will need to propose the possible course work and instructors you would include (which can be outside of the History Department, if appropriate). This should be done in consultation with your major area advisor, as well as the instructors outside of the Department (who need to verify that your work for them will satisfy graduate history requirements, etc.). You can present the plan to the GPD before we ask for approval from the Graduate School.
