HISTORY

The study of History provides us with an opportunity to think about how and why things happened; it also prompts us to consider how and why they have been remembered. At Canterbury Christ Church, you will study an impressive range of different periods (ancient, medieval, early modern, modern), with the opportunity to specialise in one of them or to take a more diverse approach. The same can also be said of historical perspectives, as students will be encouraged to think not just about events but about different approaches to events, e.g. political, cultural, and gender, and what this means for our understanding of History. You will be taught in a UNESCO world heritage site, surrounded by some of the visible remnants of the History you are studying, by historians who use their cutting-edge research to enrich the teaching. As part of the offer, there are also field trip opportunities.

Topics normally include:

  • Nazi Germany, the Cold War, Northern Ireland, Global Sixties, and American Comics
  • The Renaissance, New World Colonisation, Tudors, Stuarts, Witchcraft & Magic
  • The Crusades, Medieval Women, Vikings, Normans
  • The Ancient World.

TOURISM STUDIES

The tourism industry supports over 260 million jobs worldwide and offers a multitude of exciting opportunities for graduates.

You will gain specialist knowledge in tourism from experienced staff who are passionate about their teaching and research. Lectures and seminars are supported by a wealth of industry speakers, site visits and an international field trip.
