Understanding your past is a key element to shaping your future. This is why a History degree can be an excellent asset to have. With a degree in history, you´ll have a solid foundation for a number of careers such as teaching, coaching, journalism, law, civil service, criminal justice, government jobs, administration, or the ministry.

Studying history at TJC is a great start to your academic career. Our program provides you with the first two years of United States History, Western Civilization, and other courses to develop content knowledge, writing abilities, reading comprehension, and critical thinking. In addition, we offer a broad selection of liberal arts courses which transfer to four-year institutions and fulfill Core requirements for non-majors.

Being a historian means having the capacity to evaluate sources and determine whether content is credible and well-supported. An AA in History will give you this highly marketable skill.
