The course

This course builds a sound knowledge of modern world history through a wide range of topics, sources and study skills. You will learn to understand the motivations and backgrounds behind modern world events and identities. When you arrive at Warwick, you will choose either the Renaissance and Modern, or the Modern stream.

Within these you have flexibility to choose from a variety of study options, spanning geography and time, so your course can change as your interests evolve. These cover British, European, American, Asian and African history, enabling you to specialise in areas of pre-existing academic interest or to
explore new and constantly evolving global histories. You can also choose outside options from a compatible academic field, including a foreign language. You will learn to assess and analyse large quantities of information taken from historical sources including texts, images and film, and to present well-structured conclusions. We encourage you to develop your own thoughts and arguments, and to critically analyse others before presenting your own case.

Additional fee information

Home and EU undergraduate tuition fees for 2017/18 academic year is £9,250 and tuition fee for 2018/19 academic year is yet to be confirmed and is expected to increase subject to government policy decisions. For students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ or ‘Home/EU’ for fees purposes), the University expects to increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in the second and subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases will be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments). The University has set the overseas fees for the next 3 academic years and please refer to the following link for future overseas tuition fee http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/academicoffice/finance/fees/overseasfees/.
