Description

BSC’s history curriculum is designed to offer pre-professional training for public school social studies teaching, graduate studies in history, civil service careers, museum/archival work, journalism, and other allied fields. The study of history also serves as pre-professional training for other professions such as law or the ministry.

Traditionally, historians research and analyze the past, with the goal of making history relevant to the present. In addition, historians attempt to prepare students to understand themselves and society.

Preparation

Students with interest in history should consider high school courses in history, writing, and the social sciences.

Requirements

Students who complete the curriculum requirements earn an Associate in Arts degree.

Bismarck State College has many cooperative, articulation, or transfer agreements with postsecondary institutions both inside and outside of the North Dakota University System. Some of these agreements are established to allow students to remain on campus as they complete their bachelor’s degree. In all cases, students seeking to transfer after completing a degree at BSC should consult the academic catalog of their destination college and work with their academic advisor to plan for this transition.

Career Opportunities

History Professor, Historian, Curator, Genealogist, Archivist, Biographer, Researcher, Ethnographer, Market Research Analyst, Anthropologist, Archaeologist.
