To understand the present fully, we must look to the past. History is concerned with how the world came to be the way it is, and why. We offer courses which are highly flexible, covering topics ranging from Alexander the Great, Chaucer’s England and Europe since 1870 to Slavery in America, Women in 20th-century Britain and The Rise of the Nazis. We excite your curiosity, stimulate debate and challenge your thinking.
You learn key skills such as critical appraisal, logical argumentation, research skills, fluent communication and the ability to think and process information clearly – skills which are transferable to any career and are highly valued by employers.
