History AA

The College’s History AA degree curriculum integrates a broad spectrum of courses in the social sciences and related disciplines to prepare students who wish to transfer to four-year colleges or universities to continue their study of history. The program is ideal for students who wish to pursue careers in education, law, foreign service, research, communication and information management, as well as for jobs in the federal, state and local government and at historical sites.

The program meets the competencies and requirements specified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Transfer Agreement Oversight Committee (TAOC) for seamless transfer to schools in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE).

The College offers History courses at both its Central Campus in Blue Bell, West Campus in Pottstown, as well as online through its Virtual Campus.
