Ph.D. Minor

Stanford graduate students pursuing a Ph.D. program other than in History may apply for the Ph.D. Minor in History.

The minimum University requirement for a PhD minor is 20 units of History coursework at the graduate level (courses numbered 300 and above) at Stanford. All units should be in a single field. Units taken for the minor can be counted as part of the overall requirement for the Ph.D. of 135 units done at Stanford. Courses used for a minor may not be used also to meet the requirements for a master's degree.  Stanford Ph.D. students cannot pursue a minor in their own program. A Ph.D. minor form outlining the program of study must be approved by the major and minor departments.
