Knowing the past is the key to a better future. Our History department deals with topics on many different peoples and places. In the study of history, you’ll learn the skills of finding, interpreting and relating historical information, rather than simply memorizing historical data. Through the study of history, you’ll gather and apply information to gain a perspective on the human condition. Our courses will prepare you to transfer to a university and seek careers in teaching, historical archaeology, or government positions. There are broad areas in the job market where a liberal arts background is needed, and history can be a great choice of major for many careers.
