Students study the impact of events on different sections of society throughout the time periods studied and are able to consider why attitudes towards issues such as law and order have changed through time. A number of transferable skills are embedded in the course, such as researching, editing, preparing presentations, producing reports and selecting evidence for particular tasks.
