Photo for HistoryConnecting our past with our future.

Whether you choose to major in history at a 4-year institution or pursue another area of study in the liberal arts, the study of history gives you a window into the arts, politics, significant events, and social customs of the past. History can help you understand where we came from, how we got to where we are now, and even where we might be going next.

Program Planning

Recommended Planning Schedule:

The history department suggests the following schedule of courses for students who want both to earn TCC's Associate in Arts and Sciences (college transfer) degree and to begin a history major that can be completed at a four-year college or university.  Substitutions may be made for any of these courses, provided that the degree plan is followed for the Arts & Sciences Option A degree.  (Students who wish to transfer should check the specific requirements of the four-year institution of their choice, as many colleges and universities require courses in non-western history.)
