Did you know:

Neanderthals walked alongside modern humans as recently as 30,000 years ago. The Great Wall of China, first built in the 3rd century B.C., is nearly 4000 miles long and was considered ineffective against invaders. England’s Magna Carta was signed in 1215 and served as the basis for the U.S. Constitution. Arizona was the last of the 48 contiguous states to be admitted to the Union.

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
