Are you a creative and critical thinker? Are you prepared to question rather than accept common ‘facts’? If you have an enquiring mind we offer a range of popular humanities courses delivered by experienced and specialist staff that will nurture your curiosity and help give an understanding of the world we live in.

Our thought-provoking courses include subject areas such as History, Law and Sociology. These courses will give you a different outlook on your everyday world and present you with questions and controversial subject areas that are not usually taught at school. You will learn through presentations, group work, discussions and online research which will challenge you and provide you with a set of transferrable skills that are desirable to both employers and universities.

These courses are rigorous but very rewarding and present fantastic career opportunities. With the support and knowledge of your tutors, you will be provided with everything you need to progress to careers in medicine, journalism, social work, criminology or the police force. Many learners also progress to degree level courses and we have established links within the local community. 

There are no courses for this subject area that match this criteria.
