History is a fascinating and challenging subject. You will be looking at massive changes and analysing why they happened. It is not just an account of the past but an investigation of why things happened the way they did. If you have an enquiring mind and enjoy argument this is the subject for you. Be a part of the thriving, lively and successful department and learn about events that have shaped the world you live in and the people and circumstances that shaped these events.

What our students say

History is not only an interesting subject but also one that opens your eyes to events in the past that have shaped the world we live in, therefore allowing you to gain a wider outlook on life. The thing that impresses me most about Carmel is the sense of community, this is especially present in the History department. All tutors are approachable and always prepared to give the students the support they need.
