The program student learning outcomes or competencies that students will achieve by successfully completing the Associate of Arts in History for Transfer Degree are:

 

  1. History Literacy and modes of inquiry to include—
      1. Documental/textual recovery and representation sufficient to attaining narrative coherence and plausibility.
      2. Evidentiary accountability of sources (primary and secondary) so as to validate narrative truth-claims and expressions.
      3. Analytical and synthetic prospects including Investigative; Conceptual; Comparative, Hermeneutical-Interpretive; and narrative wholeness aptly representative of a true past.
  2. History’s Intra/Interdisciplinary Responsiveness to include-
      1. Disciplinary Inclusiveness with both narratives studied and constructed (i.e. student productions) reflecting the cognitive insights associated with the two domains of modern learning; namely, the Human Arts and Sciences; and the Physical-Natural Sciences.
      2. Disciplinary Selectivity with narratives studied and constructed; these displaying a sensible and fruitful application of disciplinary modes and insights chosen as pertinent to narrative engagement in a given instance.
  3. History’s Ethical Alertness and Concern to include –
      1. Attaining Ethical Clarity with both narratives studied and constructed as they are informed by beliefs, values, persuasions, affirmations/negations, etc. apparent in their substantive expressions.
      2. Demonstrating Ethical Practice with narratives studied and constructed opened to consideration from "without" (theoretical-interpretive critique); and from "within" (affirmative understanding of ethical meaning).
  4. History’s Socio-Cultural Inclusiveness to include-
      1. Demonstrated trans-cultural referencing with both narratives studied and constructed, this to show pertinent multicultural aspects as accurate representations of variable contexts.
      2. Recognizing and explaining Socio-Cultural Trajectories (i.e. developmental patterns, trends, connections, dislocations) as narratives are studied and constructed.
      3. Discovering and explaining Globalizing relationships among peoples and nations—both ancient and modern—whose associations are often a matter of happenstance rather than intention. Narratives studied and constructed ought to explore recurrent (even ironic) episodes of intense ethos conflicts amid growing human interdependency.
