History

History at UEA is taught by experienced, internationally renowned academics. Our modules are inspired by their research interests and expertise, so your learning will be at the forefront of the historical debate. We have particular strengths in British, European, Russian and Soviet history, the Atlantic world, the Middle East and Landscape. Whether you’re interested in all areas of historical study or looking forward to developing new specialisms, in your second and third years you will be able to tailor your degree by choosing from a huge range of optional modules. And you’ll be able to broaden your horizons even further with modules from other disciplines including English literature, languages and politics. Whichever path you choose, you’ll develop a knowledge of the deep connections between history, memory and the past and the present. You will learn to explore and understand the forces that shape the modern world, be they political, economic, social or cultural. You will come to understand how knowledge is constructed and manipulated – how history is written – and you will engage with its interpretation and debate. **Course Structure** **Year 1** Your first year will give you a solid foundation in the main periods in British and European history. Compulsory modules will cover British and European history from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, and you’ll also be introduced to more specialist historical themes, such as witchcraft. In our History, Controversy and Debate module you’ll explore established methodologies and theories of historical enquiry. Through all of these you’ll develop your skills in research, analysis and debate. **Year 2** In year two you’ll be given the option to specialise in your historic focus or keep it broad. You’ll have access to a wide range of modules offered by the School of History, covering topics ranging from medieval history to the late twentieth and early twenty-first century. There are no compulsory modules this year, so it’s completely flexible and will allow you to tailor your learning to the topics that most interest you, all the while honing your skills of academic enquiry and argument. You can also choose to study abroad in your second year, learn a new language, and/or broaden your studies by taking modules chosen from those offered by other disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. **Year 3** In your final year you’ll specialise even further and master the intellectual skills required of a historian. You’ll select one specialist subject from a range that typically includes topics such as Henry VIII, Stalin and Stalinism, and Sixties Britain. Each subject will be led by an academic currently researching the specific area – so it’s like reading their books before they’ve been written. In addition to your chosen area of focus you’ll study two advanced modules, covering subjects such as the crusades, the medieval outlaw in history, and legend and youth in modern Europe. Alternatively, you could opt to take just one advanced module and also write a dissertation on a historical topic of your choice. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
