Course Overview

The present trend in historical studies is toward the apprehension of the human past in all its complexity and totality. The Bachelor of Arts (History) - B.A. (History) - programme at Egerton University is based on this approach in respect to the fields of specialization and the area or country studies offered. It is anchored in the theories and methods developed since the emergence of History as an academic discipline. The programme dove-tails with University‘s mission of producing well-rounded graduates in all areas of human endeavour. It is offered to students aspiring to a professional career in History or otherwise seeking to specialize in the discipline. It thus provides an excellent springboard for those intending to pursue postgraduate studies in History. Alternatively, it should serve the pre-qualification requirements for careers in such fields as Public Administration, Education, Law, Diplomacy, Journalism, Archival Work, and Museology.
