The study of the human experience helps us to understand the world around us, it helps us to comprehend cultures and how history is made. By studying a course which explores the world since 1492, we foster historians that offer a considered perspective about the relationship between the past and future, thinking critically about the world through the lens of the past.
It caters to those who wish to understand how human societies have changed over time. It fosters critical thinking skills whilst inviting you to analyse how forces, such as racism, gender constructs, class, political identities, war, and the environment have intersected, interacted, and evolved.
The History (Hons) programme from Coventry University helps you to engage with primary (historic) sources, providing opportunities for you to engage with the materials upon which historians rely as well a broad range of voices from marginalised communities. Assessments are varied and innovative. Opportunities are embedded throughout the course which will allow you to develop a portfolio of not only written pieces, but media artefacts and international experiences (which include accredited fieldtrips and online international learning projects).
Throughout the course, your academic study will be combined with broad-based skills development. On successfully completing this course, you will have had the opportunity to develop a range of transferrable skills, which are highly valued by employers, including excellent communications, critical thinking and analysis, strong presentation and listening skills.
These skills, together with your knowledge of the world, could open opportunities to careers in government, business, media production, digital publishing, journalism, lobbying, campaigning, voluntary organisations and international organisations like the United Nations (UN) or the European Commission.
