If you are curious about the past, you will find great rewards in the study of history.
What happened a decade ago? A century ago? A thousand years ago?
In the History Transfer Pathway program at Minnesota State College Southeast you will learn about the events of the past that brought us to where we are today.
This 2-year Associate of Arts degree is designed for direct transfer to any of the seven universities in the Minnesota State System.
History is more than memorizing the "facts," like dates, times, and places. History is how we discover and tell the story of the past.
In your history classes, you will analyze texts critically, evaluate and form judgments on past historical events, and communicate your conclusions in spoken and written form.
In our program, advanced courses in Minnesota, American Indian, and music history will help you build skills in courses at the sophomore level, using historical research, writing, and museum experience.
The study of history is part of a well-rounded education in the liberal arts. Skills in research, writing, and critical thinking are relevant to all careers and professions.
