History Associate in Arts

Learn from the past

Live in the past. History is a pretty general term – which means you get a great intro into the field. Classes cover everything from American history to western civilization to Asian history and more. 

Back to your future. Studying history opens doors in a variety of fields like teaching, government, law and more. You learn to find accurate information and analyze it, thinking critically about the world around you. 

Move forward and make history. An associate degree in history truly stands the test of time. No matter which field you choose, you’ll have a great foundation to continue to a four-year college. 

If you are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university, you should become familiar with your chosen school’s requirements. See your Academic Advisor for assistance in developing your Student Education Plan (SEP) or visit
