Program Description


History is what happened, what historical writings and people represent to have happened, and the application of this knowledge to us and to our time. In addition to adding zest to life, history courses meet graduation requirements. HIST 151 and HIST 152 fulfill the Civil Society and Culture General Education Outcome. History offerings cover the fields of world civilization; American history; and specialized topics such as African-American, Middle Eastern, and military history. In addition, the History Department has recently added several online courses, including the American Revolution, the American Civil War, the Cold War and the Vietnam War.

Requirements are subject to change. The information represented here is effective starting Fall 2017 and applies to the current catalog year. If you were admitted prior to this year, please check your requirements under the My Progress section of HFC Self Service.
