    Heya,

    I'm not sure what you mean - they are both very different subjects. Do you mean English literature?

    History is the study of the past, based on critical analysis of primary sources and secondary texts to draw conclusions about how or why historical events happened. English is the study of literature and prose, although you may need to put them in their historical/social contexts.
