Ph.D. Minor

Students pursuing a PhD other than in History may apply for the PhD Minor in History. PhD students cannot pursue a minor in their own program.

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 PhD 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.

A PhD minor form outlining the program of study must be approved by the major and minor departments. The form can be found here
