The Blinn College District History Department offers students an Associate of Arts in History that transfers to the state’s leading universities, including Texas A&M University, Sam Houston State University, the University of Houston, and Texas State University, and the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV).

Through Blinn’s CAPS Program, offered in partnership with UHV, students can dual-enroll at both institutions, earning their Associate of Arts at Blinn before becoming a full-time student at UHV and applying those credits toward a Bachelor of Arts in History.

Students who pursue their Associate of Arts in History learn to research, interpret, and analyze historical events while developing strong writing and speaking skills and learning to analyze sources and determine the strengths and weaknesses of sources, witnesses, and evidence.

In addition to the Associate of Arts Degree, Blinn’s History Department offers seven courses that meet the American History requirement in the Texas Core Curriculum : HIST 1301: United States History I, HIST 1302: United States History II, HIST 2301: Texas History, HIST 2327: Mexican American History I, HIST 2328: Mexican American History II, HIST 2381: African American History I, and HIST 2382: African American History II.
