Future opportunities

At Hutton, we believe that History teaches so much more than just some dusty old facts from the past and we aim to provide an experience that will stimulate the mind and develop a life-long interest in the subject. Employers and academic institutions place a high value on skills developed through the study of History. In particular they are impressed by the ability of historians to research, analyse and present information. Above all, History helps you to think logically and put forward reasoned arguments. History is a valuable subject for a wide variety of careers including law, accounting, management, civil service, journalism, media, police, teaching and any other fields where you need to understand people and how they act.
