What is History?
The study of History is the story of human origins and therefore an exploration of who we are. Studying History at UC Clermont provides students an entry point into the wider world of the humanities and social sciences disciplines.
The associate degree in History provides students with the broad educational foundation needed for pursuing a baccalaureate degree as it helps students develop critical, analytical and creative thinking skills.
This program is open to all students with a high school diploma or GED and the desire to succeed in college. Although admission is open, students accepted into the program must meet the academic standards of the program to advance to upper levels of study.
First year students will need to take the placement test. This test does not affect admission; however, the results are essential for proper placement in classes. Students must complete the placement test before they may register for English or mathematics courses. All placement tests are given free of charge.
Students who are curious, comfortable with complex questions, and enjoy writing, reading and discussing are well-suited to the History major.
A History major is not limited to one specific vocation. Its aim is to teach students to think critically, analytically and creatively. It educates students in clear, coherent communication skills, both oral and written. It broadens understanding and enhances ethical decision-making. It also prepares students to learn vocational or technical skills easily and quickly. It is the foundation on which executive careers are built.
The study of History is quite useful for pursuing a career in law, medicine, marketing, advertising, insurance, editing and publishing, journalism, sales, teaching or any of the increasingly complex technological industries that demand well-educated professionals.
The Clermont campus is on 92 wooded acres located in Batavia, Ohio, in the heart of Clermont County. UC Clermont College is relatively small and has a low faculty to student ratio. Small class size and personal interaction with the faculty create the ideal learning environment. Parking is convenient and at no additional charge. Plus, UC Clermont’s tuition is the lowest of the UC colleges.
You must complete an application for degree and receive a pre-certification from your academic advisor the semester before you expect to graduate. You should see your advisor (513) 732-5319 for specific information well in advance of your final semester.
To transfer to UC, students should be in good academic standing at the college or university last attended. We accept transfer applications all year long and students may start any semester, provided their transcripts arrive in time to be evaluated before the start of the semester they wish to attend.
Those who have not taken college level mathematics or English will need to take the placement test. (Unless they have English AP credit.)
Other UC students may transfer into UC Clermont College by completing the application for change in college and program form available from most UC admissions offices including ours, (513) 732-5319. We urge students to see their advisor before transferring into a different major to minimize any impact on their degree progress.
