History is the study of the human past. As a discipline, history remains a chief foundation within the humanities and social sciences. Its broad and interdisciplinary approach offers many theoretical and practical applications for interpreting and understanding human society.
The study of history emphasizes reading, writing, critical thinking, research, thesis formulation, and debate. The history major prepares students to transfer to a four-year institution for continued and advanced study in the field of history or its related disciplines.
