This is history.
History is the story of humanity. It is the examination of the written record of major social, political, cultural, and economic events of the past. The study of history seeks to form narratives and uncover linked sequences and patterns in past events. It also investigates cause and effect, or why certain outcomes happened as they did and how they are linked to earlier events.
Enriching and fascinating, the courses offered in the History program at MCC will spark your imagination and help develop your writing, critical analysis, and research skills. Our program is ideal for the student who wishes to continue on to a four-year liberal arts program.
A generation that ignores history has no past and no future. -- Robert Heinlein
