Our Single Honours History programme in Cornwall offers a traditional basis in British, European and world history, with particularly strong and innovative practices in the latter. We place particular emphasis on using history to understand the challenges posed by globalisation, ethnic conflict and scientific and environmental change. Equally exciting is our commitment to public history, which gives you the chance to carry out work experience within museums, galleries and similar organisations. You may be working on your own or as part of a team; either way, you will develop skills and gain experience which will help you to compete in today’s competitive graduate job market. Work experience may involve activities such as researching and preparing materials for a museum exhibition; documenting and researching collections of photographs, maps, costumes or military memorabilia; writing short magazine articles; or recording oral histories. As with History at the Streatham Campus, research is integral to all our work, and members of staff are nationally and internationally recognised for their research activities. You will directly benefit from this as our research influences the teaching on our undergraduate programmes. Our expertise is concentrated in the modern period, approximately from 1600 to the present, incorporating social and cultural history, international and economic history and many geographical areas, including the Far and Middle East, Europe and Britain and the Americas. As you might expect from a programme based in Cornwall, we reflect environmental and ecological approaches to history in our teaching as well as the more traditional cultural, political, social and economic aspects.
