Students who matriculate toward the minor will gain a better understanding of the unique characteristics of the region. The structure of the minor is designed to impart introductory information about the archaeology, culture, geography, history, and environment of the region, and to provide an avenue for more in-depth analysis through independent study, seminars, and/or internships. The minimum requirement for a minor in Northern New England Heritage Studies is 15 credits.
