History helps you discover how your world evolved. • History helps you develop the skills to look beyond the headlines, to ask questions properly, and to express your own opinions. • History trains your mind and teaches you how to think and process information. • History students are rounded individuals who develop an understanding of both past and present. • The pursuit of historical events and people is fun - a form of time travel. • History helps you make sense of most other subjects. • A lack of historical knowledge prevents people from truly understanding the world they live in. • History helps you understand the origins of modern political and social problems. • History makes you appreciate that people in the past were not just 'good' or 'bad', but motivated in complex and inconsistent ways, just like us. • History provides you with the skills employers are looking for.
