Registration for SPRING will be open beginning Monday, October 15th!
History is a story, a window, into events that happened yesterday, the year you were born, or in ancient times. By studying history you can explore complex processes of war, invention, plagues, discovery and social change, including the factors that are causing change around us today. The History concentration offers an array of classes involving human interaction, such as history, world civilization and government.
The program’s goals include understanding and appreciating the past, improving the present through better decision making, and building a future less tolerant of human suffering. Objective thinking, thoughtful analysis, and the free and unfettered exchange of ideas are stressed.
In addition to preparing students for careers in government service, law, teaching, business, human relations, insurance underwriting, advertising, and journalism, an education in history can lead to a variety of enriching careers. Positions that attract history degrees will likely require some of the following qualifications: experience, extensive knowledge of a particular time period or region, the ability to communicate with diverse groups of people, and good writing and research skills.
It is an ideal degree for students at two-year colleges who have not yet decided on an exact career path.
