Course Information
 The purpose of the Course is to open up the world of the past for learners. History provides learners with insights into their own lives and of the society and the wider world in which they live.

Options cover topics from the Medieval, Early Modern and Later Modern periods and include elements of political, social, economic and cultural history. 

The approach developed and the understanding gained can be applied to other historical settings and issues.
The main aims of the Course are to develop:
  • A conceptual understanding of the past
