The study of history is an essential part of a liberal arts education and offers valuable preparation for many careers: in law, journalism, libraries, and museums; in local, state, and national public service; in business; in international work; and, of course, in historical research and teaching.

- take at least nine hours of their minor "core" requirements at UNC–Chapel Hill
