History, AA

Program Overview

Plan of Study in History

The following curriculum is designed to satisfy the basic lower division requirements for history majors at senior institutions. If you have chosen a transfer institution, consult them to make course selections. Students enrolling in this curriculum are urged to meet with an academic advisor each semester to review course selections and transfer plans.

Additional Program Information

Competency through the second, third, or fourth semester of a single foreign language is required for a B.A. in history at some schools and for all majors in the college of arts and sciences at other schools. Ask about the language requirement of the college you are considering and complete the required foreign language courses before transfer.

Since schools divide historical periods differently across courses, students should complete course sequences at the same school. Additional history courses – such as third-world or non-Western civilization – may transfer either for history major credit or as general education credit, depending on the school. Students should select courses in consultation with an advisor.

Students who have decided upon a minor field are encouraged to complete one or more courses in the minor. Students planning to seek high school (6-12) teacher certification are encouraged to complete one or more professional education courses. Courses should be selected in consultation with an advisor.
