Liberal Arts, History Concentration, AA

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Certificates

Study the origins and development of society by taking courses that focus on the history of regions, countries and peoples from prehistoric times to the present.

What can I do with this concentration?

Academic options: This program has been designed to match as closely as possible the first two years of a history degree at the University of Arizona. Students planning to transfer to another university should meet with an advisor to complete a transfer plan. All courses in Pima’s concentration are not required at transfer universities, but provide a good lower division preparation for history majors.
