Course summary

This is one of several specialist routes available in our BA (Honours) Arts and Humanities (R14). The degree starts by developing your understanding of the world we live in through a variety of perspectives, periods and subjects – including art history, classical studies, creative writing, English language, English literature, history, modern languages, music, philosophy and religious studies. You’ll then take at least two specialist history modules covering different periods of history from around 1500 to the late twentieth century. You’ll tackle such exciting and challenging issues as power and warfare, culture and beliefs, health and medicine, imperialism, class and gender, and learn the skills of the historian in understanding sources, debates and approaches to the past.

Alongside your study of history, you can choose to study a second specialism from the subjects listed above. This will entitle you to include both subjects in the name of your degree, or complete your degree with modules chosen from a wide range of options.

Key features of the course

  • Specialise in history within a broad and flexible arts and humanities degree

  • Develop a range of skills that will be valuable in the workplace and to further study

  • Have the opportunity to write an extended essay drawing on independent study

  • Select a second specialism to complement and enhance your study of history

  • Registration is expected to open in March 2020 for courses starting from October 2020.
