History is both interesting and useful!

As a history student you have to build up a picture from the evidence that has been left. You have to become skilled at asking questions.

You will learn not to take everything at face value. You have to develop empathy and understanding of the actions and achievements of others; you have to be prepared to put your case and argue it well; you have to use evidence to draw conclusions and make judgements.

These skills are highly desirable in many different careers: law, medicine, business, teaching, finance, accountancy, tourism, town planning, librarian, politics, journalism, T.V research, archaeology, publishing, retail.
