Graduate Fields of Study - Comparative and World History Minor

The minor in Comparative and World History offers history graduate students in all fields a unique preparation for teaching in the fastest-growing historical field since the turn of the millennium. This minor field requires a total of four courses (12 units): one theoretically-oriented course ("World History", HIST 695I) and three thematically-organized courses in comparative history, which may include one or more courses in "Comparative History" (HIST 695H), "Comparative Women's History" (HIST 695E), "Comparative History of World Revolutions" (HIST 695Q), or other courses approved by the student's committee. Recently offered courses have included: "Slaves, Slavery, and Slave Systems in History"; "The Mediterranean as a Borderland"; "Gender and Politics of History"; "Global Environmental History"; "Science, Technology, and Health in World/Comparative History"; and "Comparative Borderlands History". Opportunities to serve as teaching assistants in the General Education world history courses provide additional experience for teaching. Students can also structure their course selection to provide background for their own comparative research or to add breadth to a dissertation topic. Faculty in Comparative and World History are drawn from all fields in the Department and include Professors Susan Crane, Linda Darling, Richard Eaton, Alison Futrell, Kevin Gosner, Katherine Morrissey, David Ortiz, Laura Tabili, Jeremy Vetter, and Douglas Weiner.
