We make the past come alive with high quality teaching by world class historians. Research-active tutors will enable you to critically appreciate the dynamics of change and stability, and apply your understanding to the histories of Britain, Europe and beyond. The historical setting of Oxford also provides a wealth of excellent resources and inspiration for academic study.
Year 1 gives a broad overview of the topics and issues from the 16th century to the present, with compulsory modules such as Making History: Theory, Methods and Sources. Year 2 compulsory modules in History and Documents and Historical Writing are complemented by optional modules covering a range of subjects including imperialism, crime, medicine, poverty and welfare, ideas and ideology, family and gender, and nationalism and statehood. All Year 3 modules are double credit modules. Each topic is studied in great depth, with advanced study offered under general thematic umbrellas such as the history of Britain, Ireland and the Empire, early modern history and the history of medicine. Modules typically employ a mixture of lectures, discussion, seminars and tutorials. Assessment predominantly consists of coursework with some examinations. Coursework takes many forms, from book reviews and web blogs to group projects and a dissertation.
