Social Science


Degree Program:

  • Associate of Arts Degree – 63 Credit Hours

Degree & Course Work Details:

Although history majors generally earn a Bachelor of Arts degree, they may also have a choice of earning a Bachelor of Science degree depending on the four-year university they attend. A history major may also pursue a program leading to state certification as a high school (6-12) history teacher. Students should complete an associate degree prior to transfer and should be aware that it may be necessary to take additional credit hours depending on the requirements of the intended transfer institution.

These course recommendations are intended for students who are undecided about a transfer school. Students who have selected a transfer school should consult the catalog of that school and an academic advisor for requirements appropriate to the first two years of study. College catalogs and transfer guides for many four-year colleges are available through Career Services.
