History | Academic Transfer

Artifacts, antiques, and ancient documents are just a few of the things history students will study at Mid-Plains Community College. 

They will read the works of published historians, examine the history that occurred within a selected time, location or event and see how bygone days often hold the key to the future. 

Mastering history allows students to become well-rounded individuals with a better understanding of cultures and trends. 

Those who are curious and organized and who enjoy reading, writing and research, typically do well as a history major
