Welcome to the History Department at Kansas City Kansas Community College. We believe that studying history gives student the skills to learn critical thinking and study skills that applies to all disciplines. We invite you to learn more about our program, classes, and exciting opportunity outside the classroom to engage with history.

The KCKCC history department's mission is to introduce students to the study of change over time, the critical analysis of primary sources, and be informed of United States and world history. Students will be better informed and aware of the complexity of the past and its continued influence upon the present.


We offer a variety of classes from Latin American history to modern United States history. We don’t memorize facts or names, we engage with stories and people that shaped the ages of long ago. In class students will read historical archives, reading the voices of historical actors from generations past. The history professors of KCKCC do not pour knowledge into students but ask students to learn together.
