Welcome the History Minor.  We have three tracks in the minor that you can choose from.  See the information below.  If you want more information on these options and the minor contact one of the History Advisors, Liann Tsoukas, lit2@pitt.edu or Tony Novosel, pugachev@pitt.edu.  You can also download the worksheet for the minor at the bottom of the page.

Hope to see you soon!
