Overview

Studied as joint honours, these subjects offer a critical interpretation of variations in the landscape, as well as gaining an understanding of the reasons for change in society.

At Worcester, Archaeology & Heritage Studies allows you to build the real-world skills you’ll need to excavate a site and identify artefacts. You’ll also develop the creative approaches you’ll need to interpret your discoveries and solve the riddles of the past.

History at Worcester offers you the opportunity to study the political, cultural and social history of British, European and World History from the sixteenth through to the twenty-first centuries. This course will introduce you to many of today’s debates surrounding approaches to historical study.
