The subject offers the opportunity for future study at A level and beyond and combines well with other Humanities subjects, including Sociology and Economics as well as English Literature. Some people argue that the subject is not as useful as other more practical and vocationally based ones, but we believe it teaches valuable skills which can easily be transferred to a number of different employment situations and remember - we deal in facts :
More History graduates find employment than students in any other subjectsLet the past be YOUR future.
Historians are involved in teaching, journalism, law, business management, accountancy, film and TV and Social Work amongst many other things.
This is because historians develop the skills that employers need – research and analysis, communication and presentation, the ability to construct an argument and be critical and a capacity to empathise with other points of view.
History helps us to become more sensitive to the feelings and attitudes of those around us and to appreciate where we have come from.
