About Program


History majors at Moorpark College learn how to think independently, read critically, and write persuasively, so they more deeply understand the complexities of the past and engage constructively in today's world as informed citizens. The study of history enables you to analyze social, economic, political, and cultural change over time. You learn how to identify a problem, gather information, evaluate explanations, understand relationships, and formulate your own conclusions. History teaches you how to place issues in context, investigate events and weigh alternatives. The content and skills gained as a History major strengthens your academic and professional abilities in all areas, and in all fields. 


The Associate in Arts in History for Transfer (AA-T in History) is intended for students who plan to transfer and complete a bachelor’s degree in History, or a similar major at a CSU campus. Please consult with a counselor before making your education plan.
