A History Minor allows students who do not choose to major in history, the oppurtunity to develop expertise within the discipline consistent with their interests and their plans beyond graduation. Students may choose to specialize in World, European, United States, Non-Western, or Military and Diplomatic History.
African American Studies - Designed to underscore the contributions of people of African descent to, and their roles in, American history and to emphasize the importance of diversity to the Corps of Cadets. Through broad interdisciplinary study, the program aims to highlight an appreciation for the significant ways race, gender, and ethnicity have combined to shape our cultural heritage while promoting the values of excellence in teaching, research, and community service.
East Asian Studies - Provides well-qualified upperclassmen the oppurtunity to develop a secondary field of expertise in a discipline of vital national interest.
International Relations -An interdisciplinary concentration of courses and academic experiences that seeks to prepare students to be more informed citizens and more effective leaders of an increasingly transnational world.
Southern Studies - An interdisciplinary concentration of courses and academic experiences that seeks to promote a better understanding of the American South and, thereby, to prepare students to be more responsible citizens and more effective leaders of that increasingly important region of the United States.
War Studies - An interdisciplinary concentration bridging the humanities and sciences to equip the future leaders and officers of the 21st-century. Through the study of conflicts past and present, the Minor in War Studies bolsters the essential skills that are the bastion of a Citadel education: critical thinking, concepts of leadership, and a complex understanding of the global environment.
