Mr Galloway: Director of Teaching and Learning – Global Faculty
History shows students how to ask questions, organise their ideas and findings and obtain information from a wide variety of sources. Students are encouraged to reach conclusions based on their own research. In class they will present their results in a variety of ways; writing up, diagrams, taking part in debate, role play and model making. Students will conduct field study using the local environment and it is the aim of the department to provide fieldwork opportunities in each academic year. Students are taught to understand how development from early Middle Ages through to the mid 20th Century have helped shape the economy, society, culture and political structure of modern Britain. Students will also study developments in Europe and the rest of the world and are helped to understand how the histories of different countries are linked.
