How did the Nazi Party get into power? What was the Wall Street Crash and how did America recover from it? History is more than learning about historical events; we challenge interpretations of the past so that we can understand how events of the past shaped our lives today. This is an exciting and varied course which will give you the skills and knowledge to succeed in higher education or the workplace.
