Studying history is a look into human behavior and an interpretation of the past as it applies to the present and future.

TMCC offers an Associate of Arts degree in history, with many courses directly transferring to UNR or other accredited four year colleges.


Courses range from introductory survey courses in American, European and Nevada history, to special topics in history such as the History of U.S. Involvement in Vietnam, the History of the Civil War, Mexican History, Gender and History, and African American History.
