The Associate in Arts with an emphasis in history prepares students to major in history when they transfer to a four-year college or university.

Through the study of history, students systematically examine the past and gain an opportunity to explore human nature and contemporary concerns.

Historians work from the written records (cultural, economic, political, and scientific) of past generations to discover the kinds of lives led and problems faced.

The study of the trials and accomplishments, deeds, and aspirations of past generations is an excellent way to obtain the kind of broad education needed in our constantly changing world.
