Welcome to a new academic year! As we start the 2021-2022 academic year, we wish to renew our commitment to excellence in education—our department’s trademark—in the belief that this is the best way that we can help you prepare to succeed in today’s constantly changing and competitive world. Our commitment is especially important at this point in history. The experience of the past 18 months has revealed the vulnerability of our societies and the ever-pressing need to educate citizens with transferable skills that can ensure life-long learning, adaptability and creative will.

Our programmes and courses will certainly help you to develop valuable transferable skills, while you participate in stimulating discussions about the past and its ties to your present and future. This academic year, we especially welcome students to our brand-new BA History & International Relations. They, like the rest of you in our other undergraduate programmes, will benefit from a wide variety of courses that explore major regions of the world, without losing our focus on the Caribbean. 

My colleagues and I will dare you to be proactive, as you learn about the past and develop valuable skills for your careers in the future.

Once again, we wish to commit to be a student-oriented department and maintain the synergies between student and staff from which we can all benefit. Please, make sure to use the Department’s social media and other communication channels and share your feedback, as we continue breaking ground for the History and Archaeology Department of the future.
