Study a degree that’s tailor-made for you.
A liberal arts degree gives you the freedom to focus on the subjects that most interest you. You’ll concentrate on a major area of study while maintaining a breadth of learning spanning the arts, humanities and social sciences.
The International History Major
The International History Major offers an in-depth insight into global history. By focusing on humankind’s shared heritage, this major aims to shine a light on what unites – rather than divides – human beings across the world.
You will touch on a variety of different national histories including British history, the politics and cultural exchange between Europe and the Middle East, USA’s influence on global politics and the historical development of China.Taking a thematic rather than chronological approach, you will develop an understanding of how different cultures and civilisations connect, interact and change throughout history. You will evaluate historical evidence, compare and contrast opposing viewpoints and draw your own conclusions about the world around you.
Elective modules will help you understand the breadth of this discipline and also give you a broad skillset. Options to learn a language and study abroad at one of our international partners will help expand your learning and global outlook.
This degree will develop you into a highly employable individual who is able to pursue a career in fields as diverse as politics, publishing, archive and museum work, academia, and journalism
You’ll graduate with a wide range of skills valuable in any workplace, including critical thinking, cross-cultural understanding, communication, teamwork and problem-solving – ready to become an engaged, thoughtful and well-informed global leader.
