rushmoreHistory presents students with worlds, times, places, and cultures in ways they never before considered. To study History is to affirm the commitment to exploring issues of diversity within both a national and global context. Students with a degree in History have the opportunity to pursue a wide range of careers. Many majors pursue careers in education, public history or historic preservation, research, communication, public service, politics, government, writing, journalism or law. The following curriculum will help students prepare for the pursuit of a baccalaureate degree in History. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans. These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
