History Department General Information
Understand what the course numbers mean
The history department offers courses at the 100 and 200 level. The 100-level history courses are the same history courses one would take at the freshman level at a university, such as History 101 and History 102. These classes are generally for students transferring to a four-year institution. The 200-level history courses are the same history courses one would take at the sophomore level at a university and again are generally for students transferring to a four-year institution.
Transfer to the UNR History Department
All of TMCC's 100-level courses and one 200-level course (History 217) are identical to those courses offered at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) and will transfer to UNR. In addition, UNR has approved some of TMCC's 200-level courses to satisfy UNR's diversity requirement. For example, TMCC's gender and history course and African American history courses will satisfy this requirement.
There are a few important things students can do to maximize their success in history.
- Make sure you do not over schedule your time. History students spend at least two hours outside of class for every hour spent in class. History requires a large amount of reading and thinking about class materials. You must try not to fall behind-it is very difficult to absorb and process large amounts of information in a short period of time. History students must take a realistic look at their time before signing up for a course.
- Be honest about your reading and writing skills, and seek help if your skills are lacking in these areas. There are great support services available at the tutoring and learning center, Dandini Campus, Vista Building, room B106. You can receive free, one-on-one tutoring for several history courses, and you can develop the writing skills that will help you succeed in your history course. Contact us for more information.
