*Credit students who are new to college (no successfully completed college coursework at other institutions) are required to take ACDV 101  in the first semester at CCBC. This is a 1-credit class, and it does not count towards the number of credits required for a degree or certificate. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) for this requirement to be waived.

**May also be used to satisfy General Education electives.


Transfer Pattern Description

This degree pattern is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in History. Beyond the General Education requirements and other degree, program, and elective requirements, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with an advisor for information about specific requirements.

Because four-year institutions vary widely in their requirements, it is strongly recommended that students who wish to pursue studies in History speak with an advisor from the Counseling Center and the History department head before registering for courses. This sequence of courses should be adjusted to meet the requirements of the transfer institution.

NOTE: Transfer institutions vary in their requirements for History majors or minors. Electives should be taken to correlate with the requirements at the transfer institution.

Transfer Pattern Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this transfer pattern, students will be able to:

  1. determine the focus of each of the main areas of history and the relationship of history to the other social sciences;
  2. analyze cultural diversity as it plays a role throughout the field of history and demonstrate an awareness of the contributions of different ethnic and cultural groups to U.S. and world societies;
  3. evaluate examples of applied history and understanding history in order to determine the effectiveness of using historical knowledge to address social problems;
  4. determine, analyze, and evaluate the role that religion, race, class, gender, and ethnicity play in influencing historical issues and events;
  5. prepare and execute written and oral communication with objectivity, conciseness, and clarity within the context of a diverse environment;
  6. evaluate sources of print and Internet information on cultural diversity and other topics; and
