History: its scope spans millennia, its object of study is humanity, its sources are everywhere and everything. History's endeavour is unashamedly vast, daunting and challenging. In submitting the past to the scrutiny of the present, it explores among so much more the experience of wars, revolutions, conflicts and diasporas, nations, empires, economies, environments, cultures, emotions and people from the most elevated to the lowliest. In history, there are no no-go areas and no questions are off limits. Studying history means learning how to learn about the past, it means engaging with its wonders and horrors, and it means joining in its telling and retelling. Studying history will immerse you in discovery, debate, discussion, understanding, surprise and awe, and it will require of you rigour, reason, questioning, imagination and passion. By studying history, you will be part of the process by which humanity¹s memory itself comes to be made.
