You will have access to two dedicated laboratories for learning about and analysing spoken and written language. HISTORY: - The study of history is the study of change and continuity in human society through time. In this wide-ranging programme you will learn different approaches to studying the past as a way of understanding the present in its political, economic, ideological, social and cultural sense.History hosts the Centre for Gender History which works closely with external organisations in the field of women’s and gender issues.
