History

- Choose modules from an exceptionally broad range of topics - Learn from expert tutors and their cutting-edge research - Become a critical reader of evidence - Study in a city steeped in history - Enjoy trips and talks with our student-led History Society History helps us to better understand the past and make sense of the world we live in. Our BA in History is an immensely varied and rich course that gives you an in-depth view of the world and the contours and forces at play between economics, society, culture, politics and religion. Our committed team of historians are passionate about their subjects, which cover a broad range of cultures, wars and traditions spanning 3,500 years. They will help you to mine the past seeking answers to pressing questions from the classical to the modern period in Britain, mainland Europe, USA and Japan. Within their fields of expertise you could investigate topics as diverse as: Ancient Greek Drinking Culture, Norman Sicily, The Middle ages in Computer Games, Imperial Japan, and the Post-War Teenager. In Year 1, you are introduced to the study of history at degree level. We help you to gain a good grounding in historical periods and cultures from around the globe, including Asia, Europe and the Americas. You explore the nature of history as a discipline, its changing assumptions, methods and definitions, and the current concerns of historians. In Years 2 and 3, you focus on the acquisition of research skills and knowledge as the basis of more specialised study. You choose from a range of optional modules in Year 2 that either focus on how to use original documents or explore, through thematic approaches, continuity and change over a long period of time. In Year 3, optional modules take the form of Depth Studies and Comparative Studies. An understanding of methodology is developed by Depth Studies, which establish a comprehensive knowledge of a particular period by evaluating the use of primary and secondary sources and any issues associated with them as evidence. Comparative Studies looks at an area of historical concern across more than one country and culture. This degree is ideal if you want to experience an extensive range of historical subjects and have the maximum flexibility of choice. Our History degree offers a broad-but-deep experience that can open up multiple career paths. Throughout your degree, you develop transferable skills such as undertaking oral presentations, both as part of a group and individually, and work on shorter assignments like the creation of posters and blogs.
