Why History?

There is power in history because every field of study has a history, whether it be science, religion, politics, technology, sport, environmental change, decolonization, medicine, or health care.

Why History Matters

For any field of interest to you, it’s beneficial to learn about how we got to where we are now, both to preserve the best parts of the past, and to learn from the mistakes of those who came before us.

If you’re looking to make a difference, look no further than political decisions, laws that govern us, and social movements, which are all products of historical events or decisions that were made in a time before our own. To understand why society is the way it is, we need to understand the forces that influenced those decisions in history, if we wish to inform positive change for the future.

History's Influence on Today

History also has relevance to today’s society, especially in film, TV and video games, where some of the most highly rated and profitable shows of all time are based on historical events, people, eras, etc. Such as:

  • The Crown, The Tudors, Vikings, Bridgerton, 300: Sparta, Outlander, Game of Thrones, and The Last Dance (Michael Jordan).
  • Video games such as Assassin’s Creed are similarly rooted in various historical eras and locations.

Programme Structure

Courses include:
  • Early Modern Europe 
  • The British Isles 1066-1603
