History

AA Transfer Degree

History is the record of past events, institutions, ideas, and people. Historians describe and analyze the past through recreating, writing, teaching, and research. They relate their knowledge of the past to current events in an effort to explain and understand the present. Program offerings are designed to give students an understanding of the development of civilization; an appreciation of its varied social, economic, political, and cultural components and their interaction; and a basic familiarity with historical methods and reasoning.
