The History programme at UWTSD allows students to explore many different political, social, economic, military and cultural aspects of history. It combines a study of change over time in broad sweeping survey modules introducing key aspects of the medieval and modern world, with more focused modules on topics such as Norman society and Crusades, the First World War and 1980s Britain. Each module is delivered in small groups and with a hands-on, immersive approach. The teaching is research-led, rooted in the professional interests and expertise of the lecturers. Students will encounter multiple approaches to and source materials for understanding the past, with a particular focus on utilising the onsite archive of manuscript and printed primary sources. This results in a rounded and comprehensive programme of study which grounds students in the requisite theories, methodologies and practices of the discipline of history. The first year of study comprises of a number of core modules. These are designed to ground you in key themes and topics in medieval history (such as the Crusades, the role of the church and the origins of universities) and modern history (for example revolutions, world wars and imperialism). These will equip you with the knowledge and skills required to undertake more specialised studies in subsequent years. Second- and third-year modules concentrate on topics such as medieval saints, the Normans, Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, the history of cities, the Enlightenment, the First World War, the legacies of the 1980s and Black Atlantic culture. You then get chance to harness the experiences acquired through your studies in an independent project in your second year and a final-year dissertation. Throughout your degree, you will examine how the past is represented in anything from manuscripts and plays, to film and music.
The programme is assessed in a variety of ways and will include several of the following types of assessment: essays of 1000 to 4000 words in length, document analyses, book reviews, short reports and reflective journals, timed tests, take-home exams, field journals, posters, group and individual presentations, dissertations of 10,000 words, wikis, commentaries and film evaluations.
