History

Department Overview
History is the study of the human experience. It is a holistic discipline involving political, economic, military, social, intellectual, philosophical, geographical and cultural aspects of the development of human kind. After developing a broad background in history, the student may specialize in regional (Western, Asian, Middle Eastern, etc.) or topical (political, social, economic, etc.) subjects. In general, the broad nature of historical studies allows the community college student to take all history classes on the community college level without history prerequisites. A variety of courses is designed to meet the requirements of both the history major and the student who needs or desires either a social science or humanities elective. Students planning to major in history at a four-year college should consult with the senior institution to determine which courses should be taken while attending Pierce College.
