History

Associate of Arts

Program Description
History is the study of human experience from the dawn of time to the present. It examines people, institutions, ideas and events of the past and the present. The primary objectives of the History program are: to meet general education requirements for American Institutions, Humanities and Social Sciences; completion of the Associate in Arts degree; and preparation for transfer to a four-year institution and completion of general education requirements for the student enrolled in a four-year institution.

Program Emphasis
The study of history develops cultural literacy, critical thinking, and other useful skills. Texarkana College offers the two-semester World History survey sequence along with the two-semester American History survey sequence. Completion of these two sequences provides the student with the necessary lower division preparation for a baccalaureate degree in History.
