Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

We place particular emphasis on undergraduate research. At Bristol, students ‘do’ history as well as read history through a mix of core units and a choice of primary source-based optional units. You will undertake one substantial piece of independent research each year, culminating in a final-year dissertation.

In the first year you will study themes in medieval, early modern and modern history. You will then pursue your own pathway through the degree, choosing from a wide range of thematic and research-oriented units.

In recent years topics have included:

  • Science and the Supernatural;

  • Britain in the 1970s;

  • Popular Culture in Early Modern England;

  • Sixties America.

Many units explore topics and periods that have a direct link to our world today

You also have the opportunity of studying abroad in Australia, Europe or the US during the second semester of your second year.
