     History

    History

    History is both a subject and a discipline. The subject of history is the human past. The discipline of history is all the methods that historians have developed to understand the human past. The human past does not change, but our methods of understanding the past are constantly changing. As society and knowledge evolve, we find new topics of interest in the past, new sources of knowledge about the past, and new tools for understanding the past.


    All History courses have the prefix of SSH. For full list of courses/open sections visit the LaGuardia Schedule of Classes or contact the Discipline Coordinator.

     Urban Study

    Urban Study

    LaGuardia's Urban Study graduation requirement is unique in the nation. Urban Study courses can be offered in any discipline as long as they examine the city (any city) as a special human environment. Two out-of-classroom experiences turn the city into a learning laboratory. By encouraging students to examine their taken-for-granted worlds, Urban Study courses bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world. As a result, all La Guardia students will be better able to function in and contribute to the city as residents, workers, citizens and leaders. Urban Study courses are writing intensive and e-portfolio courses.


    All Urban Study courses within the social science department have the prefix of SSN.
