The four-year BA History with Welsh History with a Year of Study Abroad offers a unique opportunity to specialise in aspects of Wales's past alongside the study of wider themes and periods as well as to spend a year studying at one of our partner institutions abroad. It allows you to place Wales in context, but also to reflect upon Wales's contributions to broader historical developments. The History department at Cardiff University has internationally-renowned specialists offering courses in areas such as Welsh migration in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the inter-war Depression and the impact of socialist thought. Another area of expertise is early modern Wales, where the subjects covered include the nature of Welsh identity in a period of political and religious upheaval and the nature of crime and punishment. In studying the BA History with Welsh History you will, above all, learn to 'do history' yourself. You will learn to think independently, assess the strengths and weaknesses of a body of historical evidence for yourself, and present your findings in clearly. Our friendly academic staff will be on hand to guide you and provide full and constructive feedback throughout your studies. Distinctive features This degree allows you to develop your own research agenda for exploring Welsh history and historical writing through independent study in the second and third years. You will gain invaluable cross-cultural experience by spending a year studying abroad in a partner institution in Europe, the USA, Canada or Hong Kong. The year of study abroad introduces novel academic study opportunities and will also provide you with the life skills to compete in an increasingly global workforce, such as cultural adaptability, resilience and independence.
