Are you fascinated with the people, cultures and events of the past and how they continue to impact us today? The Aims associate degree in history gives you a solid foundation for earning a four-year history degree at a college or university.
History is the documentation of the past as we know it, starting with the first written record thousands of years ago. At Aims, history is about much more than memorizing facts, names and dates. History is a social science that explores the past by understanding the tragic, triumphant and everyday stories of people from every walk of life who came before us. These stories of how people lived allow us to engage in the interconnected web where we can remember the past and use it to understand how we live today.
Earning a history degree at Aims is an affordable start to getting your bachelor’s degree. Thanks to a statewide agreement between community colleges and universities, when you earn an associate degree in history at Aims, you can transfer to any participating four-year public university in Colorado as a junior and earn your bachelor’s degree in history. Taking your general education degree requirements at Aims instead of a four-year school can save you substantial costs.
