History: Academic Subject Certificate
The Academic Subject Certificate in History will provide students with a strong foundation in geohistorical, cultural, and global connections. The courses in this certificate provide the basis for basic writing, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills to help students in a wide range of fields. The certificate fulfills most of the core requirements for the Associate of Arts degree (AA degree), as well as the WI requirements, and some additional elective requirements. The certificate will be a guided path for students who intend to earn a Bachelor's Degree in history. It will also provide a general foundation for a career in teaching, the travel industry, the service industry, and other fields such as health and law. The certificate will encourage students to attend a four-year college in the University of Hawaii system or transfer to a mainland college.
