History

History

History degrees generally offer a very wide range of modules, starting with foundational courses in the first year, and then progressing to more specialized options.

Studying history is not just about memorizing the facts of historical events. It also involves analyzing the overall impact of historic occurrences, trends and artifacts on the world – for example, how various revolutions and civil wars have shaped particular countries’ governments into what they are now, or how a strain of belief has developed to influence contemporary thinking

Good to Know

History degrees can really vary in the geographical areas they cover and the time periods you would study. They can also vary in terms of the types of history they focus on, for example, social history, political history or military history. You really do have to look at the content of each course to see if it fits your interests.
