History is the study of our recorded past, and this major prepares you
to collect and analyze historical evidence, interpret historical
behavior and apply historical understanding.
An AA-T in History prepares
you to transfer seamlessly into upper division work at a CSU campus in history.
Because of the broad application of the skills you acquire as a history
major, numerous career paths are open to you. These include careers in
the fields of communication and writing (journalist, novelist), politics
(diplomat/foreign service officer, policy advisor), social and public
service (teacher, archivist, social worker, curator, librarian) and
business (corporate historian, researcher, paralegal, lawyer).
