Red Rocks Community College offers an Associate of Arts Degree with an emphasis in History.

The study of history is the analysis of cultures from the beginning of time to the present. History involves looking at cultures through the changes in social, political and religious institutions. Historians have traditionally used the written word as their main source, but increasingly also use art, artifacts, music and film to illuminate their subject.

The Red Rocks History program approaches our subject matter from a multi-disciplinary stance, teaching through lecture, discussion and technology. Our full and part-time instructors are trained in American History, Western Civilization, Anthropology and the Humanities.
