Prepare for a major in History by taking recommended courses to fulfill the requirements
of a transfer degree.
History examines the complexity of and relationship between past events in order to understand the meaning of human experience over time. Rather than an exercise in remembering facts and dates, historical study is dynamic and forever new. In exploring the lives of diverse peoples in different times and places, historians interpret a wide range of evidence from various perspectives. Through such inquiries, history seeks to make sense of the present and the future as well as the past.
