Why study history?

The world around us right now is the product of history. We make sense of the world around us by tracing where we've been. Understanding what built today's societies helps pave the way for the future.

You will gain skills in our programs that will open the doors for your own future. Our courses give you a framework to understand historical data and learn how to present it. Our program offers three key skills: research, analysis and communication. These skills are in demand and applicable to many sectors and careers.
