The History curriculum is a university parallel Associate of Arts degree program preparing students for transfer, in accordance with the SUNY Transfer Path for History majors.

SUNY Sullivan offers small classes, attention and concern for individual students, and a suggested sequence of courses are intended to help students acquire fundamental skills of studying, reasoning, and expression.  History majors learn more than just how to interpret historical facts and events.  They gain written and verbal communication skills, the ability to see how historical events and patterns shape the contemporary world, and an enhanced understanding of diverse cultures.

Working with their faculty advisor, students will select courses that focus on American history, Western civilization and culture, non-Western Civilization and Culture, and an open history elective.  The degree requires the completion of at least 7 of the 10 SUNY General Education requirements and at least 30 General Education credits.  Students in the History major are encouraged to complete all 10 requirements.
