Exclusive summer courses in Oxford
Study History at Oxford next summer
Contrary to popular belief, the study of History is not about facts and dates from key moments of the past. Instead it concerns itself with the analysis of political, cultural, social and economic structures of the past.
The question ’why did it happen’ not ‘what happened’. Our History course introduces students to this style of thinking as well as the main theoretical challenges of studying history.
Classes focus around the central theme of ‘late medieval and Early Modern Princely Courts’ to explore historiographical debate as well as research techniques and pertinent considerations for source analysis. This ensures that students are intellectually challenged and well-prepared for their University careers.
