Overview

The curriculum is designed to involve you in real research projects right from the start. You will learn the principles of rigorous research, the methods and the practical skills.

The course covers past societies from the Roman through to the modern period, addressing political, social and cultural themes in history. We keep our seminar groups small because we want to make sure everyone takes part in the discussion.

Each year, you will take a mixture of compulsory modules and others that you choose yourself. The current list of first-year options includes: The ‘Disenchantment’ of Early Modern Europe c. 1570-1770; The Making of the Twentieth Century; American History: From Settlements to Superpower.

Outside the seminar room, you’ll work on projects that bring history to life, like our student-run New Histories blog and WikiAmerica. On the compulsory History Workshop module you’ll work alongside an academic on a research project. There are lots of opportunities to put your skills to good use through volunteering projects and work placements.

Career opportunities
