Amazing people have lived before us. Momentous times have shaped us. The power of history is inescapable. It lives today in how we think, act, dress and live. It is the force that has created countries, conflicts and cultures.

Knowing history is the mark of a well-educated person. It can also be the foundation of a rewarding career.

History courses

Our history courses include United States History, Women in American History, Western Civilization,African American History, English History and Native American History.

Our history program is built around the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree. This degree gives you a solid two-year background in general education courses that can transfer to a four-year institution. Most courses also meet the global diversity requirement in the degree. It also allows 23 hours of elective courses that let you focus on your specific history interests.


Teaching is not the only career for history graduates. Many seek careers in law, public history, historic preservation, communications, government work, business and industry
