Why study history?
In the study of history, we use a wide variety of methods to uncover the story of the past by developing skills in investigative techniques, creative problem solving, and data analysis. The skills you will learn in unraveling the mysteries of the past are the same skills that employers tell us are most in demand in the job market today. Of course, some people who study history go on to become history teachers or work in museums or for the park services, but many more use their background in history as a foundation for a successful career in business, law, or the public sector.
At Parkland, you'll have the advantage of small class sizes, taught by master faculty—never teaching assistants. Your success is our priority.
Parkland College offers a variety of history classes to prepare you for a transfer degree or to fulfill general education requirements.
