Introduction to History


Have you always had an interest in ancient history? Want to discover the facts about major world events such as the Second World War, how America got its civil rights or do want to put yourself in the shoes of someone from Medieval or Tudor times?

If so, this course is right up your timeline.

The Introduction to History is a six-week programme, designed to help you gain an understanding of the main points of history through time. It will really stretch your imagination and is ideal for those with a general interest in history, or those who would like to read history at university.

If this sounds like the perfect course for you, why not join us for the full six-weeks, or you can drop in for your preferred sessions.
