History - A.A. University Transfer Track

 

IS A DEGREE IN HISTORY IN YOUR FUTURE?

As a rule, students who pursue a degree in history know that studying the past can help them make better decisions in the present. Students learn valuable critical thinking and research skills through analyzing past events, and drawing connections to pressing issues of today.  

Gulf Coast State College's History University Transfer Track is a popular degree program, because it is broadly designed to allow students to cater the major to their own interests.  History touches upon all forms of human endeavor - from arts and languages to economics and science.   A history graduate is  prepared for a wide variety of career options including research, teaching, politics, law, marketing and communications.

The study of history is more than learning "a bunch of stuff that already happened".  The study of history remains vitally important to today's society, to not only remember the past, but also to use that insight to shape the future. Find out more about Gulf Coast State College's History Liberal Arts A.A. degree transfer track program, and start shaping your future today!
