This course would enable you to answer yes to all these questions. As well as providing an introduction to the discipline of history, the course will give you an overview of key events, the opportunity to study some in depth a broad understanding of change over time which will provide the context and background for other history courses you subsequently take.
A200 aims to interest you in the study of history. It will show you how knowledge of the past cannot be separated from debates about how we study the past. As you will see, history is constantly reshaped in response to research and debate.
The course has been recently revised: each block takes you through the detailed study of a key period in history and greater use is made of the interlinking module themes to encourage you to think about the nature of change over time. By the end of A200 your analytical and critical skills will be sharpened and you be able to engage actively with historical debate.
