What Will I Learn?

History is the study of the past in order to help us understand the present. Studying history is much more than learning about people, dates and events; you will also learn important skills that are valuable in many careers. These include strong research and writing skills, strong communication skills, and the ability to use digital collections, analyze source material, and present evidence clearly. PCC’s program introduces you to history and includes courses that are common to all four-year institutions in Colorado.
