Undergraduate Study


The Economic History Society, in conjunction with Corpus Christi, will be hosting an online super-curricular Economic History Masterclass on Saturday 23 September. The sessions are aimed at Year 12 and Year 13 (or equivalents) and will be chance for students to explore what Economic History is all about, with two academic lectures, an admissions talk, and a chance to hear from undergrads who have specialised into it. Students who are also thinking of studying Economics would also find it interesting!
