What Will You Learn?

Led by one of Britain’s longest serving monarchs, the Victorian era was one of Britain’s most fascinating periods. From hardships to triumphs, mass movements to individual accomplishments, the age was characterised by rapid change and developments in nearly every area – social, industrial, technological, medical, scientific, and cultural.

The Introduction to the Victorian Age Diploma Course will guide you through the private rooms of the palace to the shared hovels and homes of London’s slums and, along the way, offer you various viewpoints on the social, industrial, and geographical changes that were taking place.

The course opens with an introduction to the era’s namesake, Queen Victoria, her prince consort, Albert, and how they changed the role of the monarch and the public perception of royalty. You’ll learn about the rise of the middle class and the differing work and lifestyles between the upper and poorer classes.

The era’s most defining development was the Industrial Revolution. You will learn how it came about, the various industries and factory cities that grew as a result, and how it changed society, forcing workers to rise up – bringing social changes and new laws into place.

Crime became a major concern during the Victorian era, from pickpocketing to the nationwide panic generated by the murders of “Jack the Ripper”. You’ll discover how the police force was formed and crime was dealt with. You’ll also explore the changing views in religion and the advancements made in science, health and medicine.

The Victorian age saw great expansion of the British Empire. You’ll learn about the various conflicts and events that occurred as a result of the expansion efforts, including the Opium Wars and the Scramble for Africa. We’ll also look at the Hungry Forties, during which various food shortages, famines, and the Great Famine of Ireland occurred.

Finally, we’ll look at the effects of industrialisation on arts and culture.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Learn about the reign of Queen Victoria
  • Understand the causes and effects of the Industrial Revolution
  • Be familiar with working conditions and the various movements of the period
  • Discover crimes prevalent in the era and how the Police Force was established
  • Understand the different types of religion and spiritual beliefs that were a part of this period
  • Know what the causes of famine in Europe were
  • Know who Britain’s great inventors and scientists were
  • Be familiar with the artists and writers of the era
