It has the rather daunting distinction of being a subject that you never completely learn, because history never stops happening. From the dawn of time until this very moment… and now this moment… and now this one… history captures vital, living moments in time that are every bit as real and compelling as the moment in which you’re living right now.
History takes you back to these moments. History lets you see through other eyes; lets you slip into other times and lives. History puts you in distant, exotic places and lets you experience that world first hand.
History isn’t the stuff of dusty books and faded images. It’s time travel.
Your journey can begin right here. At Texarkana College, we help you develop the historical understanding, cultural literacy, and critical thinking that gives you insight not only into the past but the world around you.
George Santayana, the Spanish/American philosopher, essayist, poet, and novelist once said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” At TC, we help you gain perspective and context as you watch historical and modern events unfold. We help you see history in the making, and we help you make more informed choices for the future.
A background in history could lead to many advanced fields of study or careers in areas such as:
- Historical Archiving / Preservation / Restoration
- Museum Curation
