“Study the past if you would define the future.” – Confucius



Contrary to popular belief, pursuing a higher education in the field of History is not all about memorising the details of historical events. The subject involves examining methodically and in detail the overall influence of historic occurrences, trends and artefacts on the world. For instance, students may learn how previous revolutions and wars have shaped a particular countries’ political system, or how a train of belief has developed to influence contemporary thinking. Throughout, student would be imparted with the knowledge of past issues of human endeavour, and develop an analytical mindset to apply this knowledge to the societal problems in today’s world. Graduates often have a deeper insight into the political, cultural and social motivations that exists today.


Due to the span of possible periods and locations, there are a countless number of topics for History undergraduates to choose to specialise in. Examples of specialisations include, and not limited to, Art History, Ancient History, Military History, Country-specific History, World War One or Two, and The Middle Ages to name some.
