From African-American civil rights to the origins of the Israel/Palestine conflict, this degree delivers cutting-edge teaching and research in history from the late eighteenth to the early twenty-first century. Our research has been judged to be internationally important and this connection with debates and developments feeds directly into our teaching. We pride ourselves on our student-centred culture and strive to nurture the skills, knowledge and confidence of everyone in our community, helping develop a deep subject knowledge and an understanding of the connections between that knowledge and the present day. Our mission is to help you realise your full potential and become an independent, confident and employable graduate, able to apply your knowledge and skills in a variety of areas and actively engage with the wider world.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
The focus in all assignments is on analysis and argumentation. These skills will be assessed using a variety of different exercises including essays, book reviews, primary source analysis, presentations and contributions to online discussions. Some modules also have exams, however in the first year these never account for more than 30% of a module mark, with this rising to 40% in the second and third year. In the final year of your degree a great deal of emphasis is placed on individual research-based modules.
