Minor | Department of History


The Department of History offers Minors in History and Archaeology to undergraduate students majoring in other disciplines at SNU. Students must take at least six courses adding up to 24 credits in either History or Archaeology in order to Minor in these disciplines. Students who opt to take a Minor in either History or Archaeology acquire a basic understanding of these disciplines and can even apply for further studies in these fields.

The History Minor introduces students to a range of historical debates and issues, placing considerable focus on the interpretive methods required to understand evidence from the past. 

The Archaeology Minor enables students to interpret and use material evidence, to learn the field methods that are specific to archaeology, as well as appreciate how archaeological material, after it has been excavated or collected, is dealt with through analyses, curation and display.
