A.A. with Emphasis, History (60 credits)

Program Planning Guide a PDF document

Program Information: History is more than facts and dates — it is the effort to make sense of change in our lives by studying the way time and space reshapes our values, our institutions and our perceptions. The history department at Inver Hills offers a wide range of courses to help students develop the critical skills and perspectives that historical study can bring to a liberal arts education and to personal insights into the world. From surveys in world and U.S. history to considering family, religion, war, and the ancient and recent past, history offerings at Inver Hills provide breadth of choice, and a strong record of transfer to other institutions.

Note: To earn the A.A. with Emphasis students will need to complete all requirements for a general A.A. degree, incorporating the specific requirements of their chosen emphasis. Careful planning with an academic counselor is strongly advised to tailor the emphasis to meet the requirements of the student’s chosen four-year institution.
