Whatever career you choose, history will give you a deeper understanding of aspects of life such as politics, religion and culture. You’ll learn about dramatic moments in history that have literally changed the world.
What will I study?
In history you’ll learn about dramatic moments that have changed the world. Topics include British history between 1483-1529, The USA and Vietnam from 1961-1975, as well as Russia and the USSR from 1941 to 1991. Students will also need to submit a personal study of approximately 3,500 words, based on the struggle for African American Civil Rights between 1850 and 1968.
We hope to give you the opportunity to attend lectures given by respected academics.
