Program Description

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.

History (BA) is a course which is designed to facilitate your engagement with the historical forces which have led to the emergence of the modern world.  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 course 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).
