Bachelor of Arts (with Honours) - BA (Hons)
24 September 2018
3 to 4 years
In first year, you will study core modules on medieval and early modern history, and on modern history, to provide a strong foundation for your degree as a whole. In second year, you will continue to mould your degree around your interests and strengths, choosing from a wide range of option modules, as well as developing a greater understanding of important ideas and theories of the discipline. You will develop your critical analysis and team-working skills, and greater research and problem-solving skills. For third year, you can spend it studying abroad at one of our partner institutions (eligibility is dependent on your academic performance in Years 1 and 2). Alternatively, you can opt to continue studying at the University and complete your degree in three years. Please note that a year spent abroad still incurs a tuition fee, but this is much lower than for a normal year at Leicester; please see our website for further details. In final year, you will specialise in the historical topics that interest you most. You will study a detailed Special Subject reflecting the particular research strengths of your tutors and write an original dissertation on a topic that interests you. The dissertation is written with expert guidance from your supervisor. For further details, please see the course page on the University website.
Assessment is through exams and coursework comprising long and short essays, source analyses, group projects, and both group and individual presentations. Approximately two thirds of your final degree mark will be based on your coursework; one third on your exams.
