Liberal Arts with Integrated Foundation incorporates an extra year of study to prepare you for your undergraduate degree. Once you have completed the foundation year, you will progress directly on to the three-year BA (Hons) Liberal Arts (International History) degree.
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.
