About the course
Imagine reading the first ever work of a Christian woman, examining Henry VIII’s armour, or considering the social and political power of African American jazz. This is just a glimpse of the sort of primary material you will come face-to-face with on a History degree at UEA.
You will be able to pursue your passion for the past as you learn from world experts, debating the very latest research and studying primary sources in a region that is steeped in history. As you develop your understanding of the unfolding history of humanity, you will also cultivate a more critical awareness of the problems of the present. You will grow your research and analytical skills, and learn to develop and communicate your own ideas. You’ll graduate with a host of skills that will be invaluable in the workplace or for postgraduate study.
History at UEA is taught by experienced, internationally renowned academics. Our modules are inspired by their research interests and expertise, so your learning will be at the forefront of the historical debate. We have particular strengths in British, European, Russian and Soviet history, the Atlantic world, the Middle East and Landscape.
Whether you’re interested in all areas of historical study or looking forward to developing new specialisms, in your second and third years you will be able to tailor your degree by choosing from a huge range of optional modules. And you’ll be able to broaden your horizons even further with modules from other disciplines including English literature, languages and politics.
Whichever path you choose, you’ll develop a knowledge of the deep connections between history, memory and the past and the present. You will learn to explore and understand the forces that shape the modern world, be they political, economic, social or cultural. You will come to understand how knowledge is constructed and manipulated – how history is written – and you will engage with its interpretation and debate.
