This History BA will turn you into a critical thinker, ready to challenge traditional beliefs or viewpoints. WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE? We are one of the top history departments in the country for student satisfaction. Our degree teaches you to apply your historical knowledge to the workplace and focuses on modern and contemporary history – from the First World War to the history of medicine and nineteenth-century slums. There are no exams (you are assessed in other ways) and you can choose to study for a semester in America. IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?
