Discover past worlds. Analyse conflicting perspectives, truths and ideologies. Gain career-ready skills in research and communication.
Studying History is studying humanity. As the philosopher R. G. Collingwood noted: 'History is for human self-knowledge... the only clue to what man can do is what man has done. The values of history, then, is that it teaches us what man has done and thus what man is.'
A rich knowledge of History sheds light on contemporary politics, ideology, culture – every facet of modern life.
With a degree in History you'll gain a deep knowledge of British, European and World histories, and develop excellent skills in analysis, communication, and research.
A full list of module descriptors can be found on the University website.
