The BA (Hons) History is also available as a four year course including an integrated Foundation Year, and is designed for students who do not currently meet admissions criteria for direct entry onto the degree. You will start by completing a foundation year, which provides well structured support, allowing you to develop your skills and knowledge before continuing onto a three year degree programme. History is essential to understanding ourselves and the world in which we live. It’s not about the ‘dead past’. After all, we’re not at the end of history; we’re in the middle of it. Our History degree will offer you new perspectives on the past. You’ll examine history from the close of the European middle ages to the present day. USW’s History degree covers British and European history, the Americas from the colonial period to the present, and aspects of global history from Chile to China and back again. We place emphasis on ‘doing’ history. This means developing your skills in gathering and evaluating evidence, and learning how to build arguments that are rational and well-presented.
Students will study six modules, which will be assessed via a number of examinations, assignments and presentations. The study skills module is designed to help you with examinations and revision techniques, as well as skills including note taking, essay writing, referencing and planning assignments.
