The study of History helps you to understand how individuals, communities and societies have lived in the past and how those past experiences have helped to shape the present world. History helps us make sense of our world and understand what may lie ahead because the future is shaped by its history in so many ways. Students will have the opportunity to study a wide range of historical periods and topics with elements in British, Irish, European and International History from the late medieval age to the twentieth century. For example, you can select elements (courses) focused on Tudor and Stuart England and Ireland or Fascism and Dictatorship in twentieth century Europe. You will engage with a wide variety of historical evidence throughout the whole of your degree programme.
