The History Option is primarily designed to prepare students to transfer into the junior year of a baccalaureate degree program in history.

  • Demonstrate general knowledge of historical inquiry and research.
  • Describe the interconnection between economics, politics, society and culture, and analyze the effects of these influences on historic development.
  • Provide examples of the impact of individual and collective action upon historic development.
  • Examine the impact of perspective on the interpretation of historic events.

Developmental Courses


Sussex has embraced a practice of directed self-choice whereby students are encouraged, through guided conversations with an advisor, to best determine their readiness for this course. Students should be aware that Developmental Studies  exist and are available to help strengthen skills and encourage success. Pursuing testing and/or developmental courses is entirely up to the student. Further, testing, though providing a valuable reference point for reflection, does not create for the student an obligation to follow Accuplacer recommendations. 

The exception to this is where students seek enrollment in higher-level math courses. Students wishing to enroll in the following math courses are required to take and adhere to placement guidance from, the Advanced Algebra and Functions test, as part of Accuplacer, through the college’s testing center, for admission into any of the following courses: MATH 110, MATH 112, and MATH 113. Please note, courses in other disciplines may also require advanced mathematics placement. Students should check with their advisor.
