History Academy

Course Description

History is one of the most popular degree subjects in the UK and with good reason. Students find studying it enormously interesting and rewarding, and the skills it develops are greatly sought after by top employers in many fields. Cambridge is one of the world’s great History faculties and it is hugely important to us to encourage all very bright, potential historians to consider studying with us. The aim of studying history at university is to further your understanding and knowledge of the past and your ability to present that understanding and knowledge with clarity, insight, and discrimination. The historian has to analyse a large body of material efficiently; to evaluate its significance and utility in answering important questions about societies, institutions, cultures, and individuals; and to order his or her thoughts on these matters succinctly, clearly yet with sensitivity.
