Because you are an English/history major (I presume), you may take whatever classes you wish so long as your current school's degree progress requirements permit you such latitude. Unless you are planning to major in a field that clearly requires math and/or science, such prerequisites do not concern you as a transfer candidate.
That said, try to take classes that fulfill degree requirements at your target schools (e.g.: Western Civ, Classical Mythology, Western Lit, etc.) and are interesting to you, as you will likely do better in them and kill two birds with one stone: many transferable credits and an impressive GPA. Also, upper level courses look favorable and can often be the most rewarding, so if you are keen on transferring, try some out perhaps.
