History pathway, AA
Studying history opens doors to understanding the human past, interactions between cultures and our environment, and how processes take place. Students in history learn how to examine and analyze sources, build arguments, engage in debates of divergent viewpoints, and understand whose stories are told and whose are left out. Understanding the modern world and our potential future requires understanding what came before. History is a field that is constantly changing: there are always new perspectives and new discoveries, as well as vital conversations about how to understand what took place and understand where we fit in the narrative. Students of history interact with new and old media, perform quantitative and qualitative analyses, and strive to present material in innovative and compelling ways for audiences of all backgrounds.
