The History Minor is designed for any major degree student at Cal State East Bay, who holds a special interest in the study of the past, whether for enjoyment, skill and knowledge building, or for specific career goals. Sometimes students realize they have taken a number of history classes, and want to see their specialized knowledge formally recognized on their transcripts.

History minor degree students come from all colleges and degree programs, and include students in the sciences, business, education, arts, and liberal arts and humanities.
