BA (Hons) History

Short Description

In the History degree at Lingnan, the facts and interpretations of history will be taught, studied, and learned for the intrinsic value that study brings.  However, the distinctiveness of the history degree at Lingnan is in the extent to which the skills and attitudes which are needed in the 21st century will be kept foremost in all the courses of the degree.

Upon successful completion of this programme, students will:

  • be able to think critically, analyse, organise and communicate effectively;
  • have attained a capacity for critical analysis, independent study and in-depth research;
  • be prepared for entry into a wide range of occupations that value these important transferable skills;
  • have acquired an academic foundation for further study in history or for the study of other disciplines in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
