Recommended basic skills standards are

History is collecting and analyzing the record of what past life was like, why events occurred, and how those events led to later and present circumstances. Historians may specialize in particular time periods; communities, states, countries, or regions; aspects of life such as society, politics, economics, the military, diplomacy, science, and culture; or groups in society such as farmers and workers, women and families, or racial and ethnic minorities. Careers for historians include teaching, research, and writing; law, politics, and government; and applied or public history such as historical editing and publishing, interpreting in museums and management at historic sites, archival records collection analysis, and historical consulting for public and private agencies. Without understanding our past, how can we hope to comprehend the present, let alone the future?

Students may follow the degree with designation in History or transfer guide in History to a particular four-year college/university.  Consult your Faculty Advisor to assist you in determining the best pathway for you.
