Studying Social and Cultural History at Wrexham Glyndŵr University will introduce you to themes such as family, fashion, crime, art, politics and propaganda – from the Roman era through to the modern age.
Alongside regular class-based teaching, there are also visits to country houses, historical archives, and sites of historical importance. These provide a strong practical element to the degree and encourage engagement with a wide range of sources and experiences. We also offer a work placement module in a historical setting of your choice.
Our degree is designed to be diverse and enjoyable, with a focus on the investigative and analytical elements of historical study. This focus opens up a wide range of careers. Our students have gone on to work as teachers, writers, researchers, financial analysts and members of the legal profession.
The Foundation Year in Humanities will introduce students to a diverse range of themes and activities from the disciplines of History, English Literature, Creative Writing, Theatre and Media.
I was attracted to Glyndŵr because it is local to my home and the size of the classes; large enough to get a good balance of ideas but not so big you become a number.
