In choosing to study the Medieval and Early Modern History degree (V191) at Aberystwyth University you will immerse yourself in a range of historical periods, and gain an understanding of how and why the world has evolved the way it has. This course is student-focused and you will be able to build on your existing knowledge of history whilst pursuing what fundamentally interests you. Our History graduates are sought by employers for their highly-developed research, analysis, team-work and communications abilities.
The Medieval and Early Modern History degree scheme is designed to enable you to pursue and develop your interests in pre-modern history. It allows you to travel beyond the increasingly limited syllabus offered by the National Curriculum and take advantage of the wealth of expertise in medieval, early modern and eighteenth-century history that exists within the Department of History and Welsh History.
While many History graduates take up careers directly linked to their subject such as working in the fields of archives, heritage or museum management, others find employment in a wide range of related and non-related professional employment, including librarianship, records management, journalism, media, advertising, the legal profession, local government, business and finance, a range of jobs which incorporate research, professional writing, the police force, the military, public relations and personnel management. The research and analytical skills you will develop during your degree will also provide a sound basis for postgraduate study and for a career in academia.
