History should never be about a dispassionate regurgitation of the facts; it’s a discipline to be approached through empathetic eyes.
If you are intellectually curious, and prepared for your investigations to take you into unexpected territories, you will be at home on a pathway in History.
Why study the History pathway?
You will be constantly surprised as to where history can take you. History at Warwick’s far-reaching approach to history allows you to explore historical topics in depth from around the globe. The Department is studded with expertise spanning the British Isles, continental Europe, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Latin and North America, covering the period from 1300 through to the present day.
In your Liberal Arts modules, you will be introduced to the idea that we can’t understand the problems facing current society unless we understand their history, or the particular social and cultural contexts in which they evolved. Both Liberal Arts and History at Warwick wholeheartedly embrace history’s power to transform lives. The History Department has been teaching the social and political histories of race, class and gender since it was founded nearly 60 years ago.
