“History is the study of human experience from the dawn of time to the present. It examines people, institutions, ideas and events of the past and the present. The primary objectives of the History program are: to meet general education requirements for American Institutions, Humanities and Social Sciences; completion of the Associate of Arts degree; and preparation for transfer to a four-year institution and completion of general education requirements for the student enrolled in a four-year institution.”
