History at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

Want to study modern history without leaving behind the insight that medieval and early modern history provides? You've come to the right place. This history degree offers the perfect balance of diverse and enticing modules whilst enhancing your employability skills. Our BA (Hons) History degree focuses on world history from the Medieval era, through to the late 18th Century and early 21st Century, mainly in Britain, Europe, the USA and Asia. Throughout the course you'll explore early modern England, as well as topics such as the rise of the USA, the history of crime and punishment, the Viking World, and the evolution of the Zionist/Palestine conflict. With lots of modules to choose from in years two and three, you'll develop a deep subject knowledge and importantly, be able to connect it with the world we live in today. You'll get the opportunity to take part in a community project, undertake field trips, and write and produce a video documentary. Your tutors’ research has been judged to be ‘internationally important’ in successive Government evaluations of research quality in universities, and this feeds straight into their teaching. You’ll learn to conduct research, analyse complex information, and craft a complex argument, making you an independent, confident and employable graduate.

Assessment method

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. A minority of modules also have exams, however in the first year these never account for more than 30% of a module mark, with this rising to a maximum of 50% in the second and third year. In the final year of your degree a great deal of emphasis is placed on individual research-based content, giving you a greater freedom and flexibility to shape your studies.
