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.
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.
