Do you have a fascination with the past and its impact on the present? Both are essential interests when undertaking a History degree! An examination of the political and social changes that have shaped our world lies at the heart of this course: understanding the past can help us to make sense of the present. By exploring the political, cultural, social and environmental history of pre-dominantly Britain, Europe and America, we will consider some of the defining moments and events of 19th and 20th century. You can also choose from a variety of specialist subject areas, such as the history of ideas, gender, globalisation, international crime, race, conservation and documentary making. We have an outstanding track record for graduate employability – 95% employed or in further study six months after graduating. The development of intellectual and professional skills valued by employers is embedded into the course; you will have opportunity to improve your powers of reason, judgment, critical thinking, analysis problem-solving, and media production.
