History, A.A.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The function of history courses is not merely to train professional historians, but also to explain the past for our time. It is the habit of history that gives us a deeper insight into our humanity by looking at the alternatives provided by others.

This program permits students to focus on history as a course of study for their associate of arts degree. The core provides students the basic coursework in the field while allowing them the flexibility to tailor their program to their individual needs. Students must successfully complete core courses with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements. Students who are planning to transfer to a four-year program may need to have additional hours beyond the program requirements at Northwest College in order to transfer in as a junior. These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.
