History

Minors


A minor in history consists of twenty credits in history including nine credits at the 300 level.

Credits toward the major/minor: Courses successfully completed through Advanced Placement, courses completed at other accredited institutions, and course credit received in programs abroad may, with the permission of the chair, be counted toward history requirements. Of the work submitted for the major, interdepartmental majors, and the minor, the department requires that at least half be credits taught in the History Department and listed in the Skidmore catalog.

The department will treat six credits of Advanced Placement in either American or European history accepted by Skidmore College as equivalent to four credits toward the major or minor in history, or to the history component of interdepartmental majors.

Effective Class of 2016:
Students studying abroad or at other institutions in the U.S. may transfer a maximum of one 300-level course per term of study and no more than two such courses in total.
