History (Including Year Abroad)

Join us on an intellectual journey through the past. Choose from a unique and international range of topics, periods and countries. Your first-year modules include Society, Culture and Politics in Europe, 1500-1750, and History Workshop: Researching and Writing History at Degree Level. In your second year you study Making Histories: Concepts, Themes and Sources. Your third year spent abroad gives you the chance to gain more experience and become even more employable. In your final year you take a special subject and write an independent research project, which is your own piece of historical research, produced with the guidance and advice of your supervisor.
