Why study history?
Studying History provides us with an insight into our own lives and of the society and the wider world in which we live. Through an understanding of the concept of continuity, you can better appreciate change and its significance, both in your own times and in the past. It is also intended to enable you to develop skills in explaining historical developments and events, evaluating sources and drawing conclusions.
The skills you learn in history are valuable in a wide range of career sectors, including public administration, business management, law, museum work, teaching and journalism.
