Key Program Features
History tells the story of real people and events. The study of it helps inform and guide our decisions for the future. Everything has a history. While not directly vocational, a concentration in history at LLCC provides well developed analytical skills, a substantial and broad foundation in history, and written and spoken communication abilities that are valued by numerous potential career areas. LLCC History graduates have gone on to successful careers in education, archival and library work, government, the military, social services, counseling, business and the ministry. History is also a good pre-law focus.
