About Historical Studies
Historical Studies amounts to more than learning facts, dates and lists of historic events. A career in Historical Studies can prove challenging, and requires creativity and inspiration.
It is an intellectual and practical exploration of Historic events. In its core, it is there to assist us with making sense of the movements, years and centuries, which have led to the
world as we know it today.
It is common belief that in order to understand the present, you need to know the past and plan for the future.
Therefore in order to understand the present, one needs to learn from where we came. You need to make sense of what happened in the past, why and what wars were fought over, How European
powers encountered native peoples, powers involved in trade and to what led to key political and diplomatic decisions and policies in place today.
