Students planning to major in history at a four-year institution should follow the Black Hawk College Associate in Arts curriculum. The completion of the course of study outlined will satisfy graduation requirements of Black Hawk College. Since universities may require specific courses for a history major, students should contact an advisor on the history/political science faculty.
This program provides a broad perspective on the human condition and skills essential to any educated person. Students will study the growth and development, triumphs and tribulations of the human race over the last five thousand years. Students may specialize in American or European history. Whichever choice is made, students should emerge from the program with a much better understanding of how earlier generations created and shaped the civilizations and societies in which we live today. Students who complete this program will have a solid foundation upon which to build a history major at a four-year school.
All history courses at Black Hawk College have significant reading and writing components. Successful completion of these courses requires students to demonstrate college-level abilities in these skill areas.
Students who complete a degree in history may be employed as teachers, college professors, museum workers, archivists, public officials, government employees, corporation executives, etc.
