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, entitling you to include both subjects in the name of your degree, or complete your degree with modules chosen from a wide range of options.
