  • At our locations in Dexter, Kennett, and Sikeston (through face-to-face, ITV, and online classes)

Overview

History is the story of humanity. It is the examination of the written record of major social, political, cultural, and economic events of the past and the investigation of why certain outcomes happened as they did. Most jobs for history professionals require a minimum of a bachelor's degree and many required more advanced degrees.

Three Rivers' Associate of Arts degree, History pathway, can be a steppingstone on your path to success in this field. This program is designed to prepare you for transfer to a baccalaureate program at a four-year university. Three Rivers' class sizes are small, offering more personalized instruction than at a large university. The faculty hold advanced degrees in the specialties they teach.

Careers for those with a bachelor's degree or higher in History include historian, secondary or postsecondary history teacher, archivist, curator, museum technician/ conservator, and regulatory affairs manager. Historians are often employed by historical organizations, archaeological firms and government agencies.

You may also pursue continued graduate or professional training in areas such as law, political science/government, public administration, and communications.
