About the Program
The study of history can be enjoyable, interesting and relevant to your life. Or it can be boring, outdated and irrelevant – it depends how you teach it. At Century College, we take a different approach to studying history. Why? Because the knowledge gained from history can provide new insights and perspectives to help you understand yourself and the role you play in humanity. You'll learn to explain how men and women in the past have contributed to the human story. Through the appraisal and use of historical sources and methods, you will analyze both change and continuity in human history across different periods and cultures. And, you'll be introduced to a broad range of social, political and economic institutions. In short, when you learn more about the people who came before you, you will very likely learn more about yourself and the world too.
History Transfer Pathway AA Degree
The History Transfer Pathway AA degree offers students a powerful option: the opportunity to complete an associate degree whose course credits will directly transfer to designated History bachelor’s degree programs at Minnesota State universities. The entire curriculum has been carefully designed to guarantee junior-year status to students who have been admitted to one of the seven Minnesota State universities. There, students can complete their bachelor’s degree by earning 60 additional credits.
Minnesota State universities include: Bemidji State University; Metropolitan State University; Minnesota State University, Mankato; Minnesota State University Moorhead; Southwest Minnesota State University; St. Cloud State University; and Winona State University.
Transfer Pathway degrees may transfer to colleges and universities outside of the Minnesota State system, such as private and out-of-state schools. It is highly recommended that students interested in this possibility contact their intended transfer school, advisor/counselor, and program instructors for academic planning assistance.
