History (with Foundation Year)

Our staff are passionate about teaching and research. Covering medieval to contemporary history in Britain, Ireland, Europe, America and Africa, the course is broad and we are determined to make history active and relevant. Projects could include producing a video, constructing a website or curating a small exhibition. Past subjects have included the 1980 Bristol riots, the Indian Mutiny of 1857, Rudolf Hess at Abergavenny, the Ashanti War and Prohibition in the USA. As well as deepening your historical knowledge and developing your critical thinking, these activities build practical skills in documentary, film and video, written, oral and social media, and exhibition staging.
