New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

The Economics programmes at the College encourage students to think critically about the building blocks of the discipline of Economics, as well as enable them to use their knowledge to understand economic events and decisions in the real world. The central aim of the History minor is to enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding of the human past and to reflect critically on the complex, and often contradictory, information available to us now about that past. The minor covers a broad sweep of history from the end of Roman Britain through to present'day America. This endlessly fascinating subject demands analytical rigour, precision of thought, the capacity for empathy and the ability to communicate clearly – skills that mean it prepares you for life beyond your degree.
